Austell, GA (CBS46) Police have captured a man accused of firing shots at a Cobb County Police officer.
The incident happened late Monday night around 10:05 on Janet Lane and Davis Drive in Austell.
Police say an officer investigating another case recognized the man and when the officer stopped to question him, he allegedly pulled out a gun and fired at the officer.
The officer fired back but neither was struck. The suspect, later identified as Melchizedek Woodward, was able to get away but police brought him into custody just after 9 a.m. on Tuesday.
Woodward was located on Veterans Memorial Highway. He had two gunshot wounds and was taken to Grady Hospital where his condition is unknown at this time.
CBS46 was there when a UHaul truck was being hauled away. That vehicle had all of the windows shot out of it. It's unclear how the vehicle factors into the shooting.
The GBI will be investigating the officer-involved shooting.
