A man is in custody after exchanging gunfire with Douglasville police Tuesday night, according to the department.

Officers were called to the Gateway Village neighborhood around 10 p.m. about a person “behaving abnormally,” the department wrote in a Facebook post. When they got there, an officer saw a man, identified as 44-year-old Tyler Berry, shooting a firearm.

At that point, gunfire was exchanged and the suspect fled in a vehicle, police said. Neither the officer nor Berry were shot.

The suspect then crashed a short time later, the department said. He was taken into custody and then to a hospital for observation.

Berry faces a slew of charges, including robbery, aggravated assault against law enforcement and cruelty to children.

No other information was provided by police.
