Atlanta police arrested a suspect after a robbery attempt at Greenbriar Mall.

Police say a man tried to grab money out of a cash register at the Journeys shoe store. Employees chased him out. He then ran into a Radio Shack and used a desk to barricade himself in an office.

Employees called security, and the man fired shots and ran outside.

Police found him laying on the hood of a car. He then took off running. Police caught up to him behind the mall. Officers say the man acted like he had a gun, so officers opened fire.

The suspect took off running again, but officers quickly caught him.

No one was injured.
