According to police, it all started with a carjacking at the Estuary Ridge Apartments about 12:15 a.m. A taxi driver was robbed of his phone, his wallet and his cab while waiting for a passenger at the apartment complex in the 3200 block of Henderson Mill Road.
The car was spotted by a responding officer as it was traveling down Northlake Parkway, DeKalb police spokesman Sgt. E. McCown said.
“The suspects crashed the vehicle on Northlake Parkway and fled on foot,” McCown said in a statement. “Two officers pursued the suspects into the parking lot of the old Sports Authority building where they received gunfire. Both officers returned fire before the suspects fled into the woods at the rear of the building.”
Ramirez was taken into custody after another officer spotted him at a nearby MARTA stop and noticed he matched one of the suspects’ descriptions, police said.
No details were provided about the juvenile’s arrest.
