As the man escaped the scene, the suspects allegedly fired shots at the vehicle, one grazing the man in the head. It was after he’d driven away that he realized he was hit, Parish said. The man called police and was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. The child was unharmed, she said.
The two suspects abandoned their vehicle on Glencroft Place and went to the subdivision entrance, at Thompson Mill and Panola Road, where they encountered an AT&T employee with a company van, Parish said. They allegedly stole the van and fled the area.
Police caught up with the van on Interstate 285 north, near the Chamblee Tucker Road exit, where they boxed the vehicle in, forcing it to the side of the highway. One suspect was taken into custody on the side of I-285, and the second suspect, who was dropped off before the van entered 285, was picked up at a different location, Parish said.
