“Fearing for our safety and the safety of the public at large, a Chamblee police officer fired one shot, striking the subject,” Beller said.
He died on before an ambulance could take him to a hospital.
More witnesses told police they were shot at by a man in a silver car, which matched the description of a car found at the QuikTrip parking lot, Beller said.
The GBI is investigating and the officer who fired the fatal shot has been placed on administrative leave in accordance with department policy.
Anyone with information about the shootings is asked to contact police.
