Police arrest man suspected of shooting rifle at MARTA train station

MARTA police arrested a man Thursday who is accused of firing a rifle at a northeast Atlanta train station earlier this week, officials said.

Alim Chino Bridges, 21, is facing two counts of reckless conduct and two counts of discharging a firearm or pistol near a public highway or street, the department said in a news release. Authorities said they identified Bridges as the man seen in surveillance video firing shots in the parking lot of the Inman Park station Monday.

Police said it did not appear anyone was injured.

Concerned Reynoldstown residents had reported seeing a man with a rifle walking through the neighborhood for more than a week, and they heard random gunshots over several days, Channel 2 Action News reported.

MARTA officers apprehended Bridges at the H.E. Holmes station in northwest Atlanta on Thursday, according to the release. He remained jailed Thursday night on $4,000 bond, Fulton County booking records show.

“I want to commend our Criminal Investigations Unit for their outstanding work in identifying and locating this suspect,” MARTA police Chief Scott Kreher said in a statement. “MARTA has an extensive network of cameras throughout the system and a near perfect record of apprehending suspects by our officers. We will always work to hold violators accountable for their actions.”
