Two people were shot at a Smyrna apartment complex Wednesday before the three suspects led police on a high-speed chase. The suspects crashed near Vinings and two of the three were taken into custody.

Woman dies after double shooting; 3 suspects arrested after chase

A woman shot at a Cobb County apartment complex Wednesday afternoon has died, and three men have been arrested in connection to the incident.

Smyrna police spokesman Officer Chris Graeff said Wednesday night that the woman – one of two people shot at the Mission at Galleria Apartments – died as a result of her injuries. She was shot in the head and taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Channel 2 Action News reported that a man — the second person shot at the apartment complex — was treated at the scene after being shot in the side.

Three men have been arrested in connection to the shooting and a chase that ensued after the incident.

Graeff said that during the initial investigation into the shooting, authorities were told to look out for three men in a red Toyota Camry. Shortly thereafter, a Smyrna officer got behind the vehicle on Cobb Parkway, which sparked a chase.

After traveling down Windy Hill Road and onto Interstate 75, Cobb police officers got involved in the pursuit, Graeff said. The pursued vehicle then got onto Paces Ferry Road near Paces Mill Road in Vinings, where it struck a vehicle and overturned.

“This red car zooms by us in the other lane,” Sarah Miller, a witness, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I saw the car hit the side of another car and flip over.”

Graeff said all three men attempted to flee the vehicle after the crash, and officers were able to catch two of them close to the crash site. The third was captured some time later, also near the crash site.

Neither the victims nor the men arrested by police were identified Wednesday evening.
