Crime Suspects Opened Fire at Officers Throughout High-Speed Chase Spanning Multiple Jurisdictions in Georgia: Authorities
Georgia voting law explained: Here's what to know about the state's new election rules
Republican lawmakers in Georgia have overhauled the state's elections. Here's a breakdown of what will change under Senate Bill 202.Democrats and civil-rights groups panned the voting bill, and major Georgia-based corporations came out against the bill after it was passed. GOP state lawmakers who backed the bill and other Republicans nationwide harshly criticized the backlash, calling for boycotts of brands like Coca-Cola and Delta Air Lines.
Three law enforcement officers are injured, and one suspect is dead after a multijurisdictional, high-speed chase Monday morning, say authorities in Georgia.
In a press conference, Captain Brandon Dawson of the state patrol told reporters that a trooper noted a Nissan going 111 miles per hour. The officer performed a traffic stop. The vehicle in question did come to a halt, but fled as the trooper approached, Dawson said. The officer performed a pit maneuver, which was only temporarily successful as the driver regained control. The passenger allegedly opened fire using a rifle, disabling the trooper’s vehicle.
Capitol Police officer, suspect dead after driving into barrier: What we know
One Capitol Police officer has died and another is hospitalized after Noah Green allegedly drove his car into a barrier outside the Capitol.The incident triggered a lockdown of the Capitol complex while both chambers were out of session and most lawmakers in their home districts, and came nearly three months after the Capitol Building was under attack by a mob of mostly Donald Trump supporters in the deadly Jan. 6 riot.
That ended this officer’s involvement in the chase. The Carrollton Police Department took over. Chief Joel Richards said the passenger fired rounds at authorities, striking Sgt. Rob Holloway. Officers rendered aid. Holloway, who joined the department in 2008, was undergoing surgery.
The next stage of the chase reached Villa Rica. Chief Michael Mansour gave a similar story as his counterparts: law enforcement chased, and the suspects fired, striking a patrol car. Officer Chase Gordy was hit twice, and taken to Grady Hospital.
Carroll County deputies handled the final leg of the chase. Sheriff Terry Langley said deputy Jay Repetto sustained a gunshot to the arm, and is getting treated at the Atlanta Medical Center.
One of the suspects was shot by an officer. The other was arrested after a negotiation, and remains at Carroll County Jail Langley said.
Best Amazon tablet in 2021
Looking for a tablet that does everything you'd expect it to, but at a fraction of the cost of an iPad? Amazon has what you want.The Fire tablets all run Amazon's Android-based operating system called Fire OS, meaning you won't find any of Google's apps or services on the Fire tablets. Amazon even has its own app store that developers have to use. That said, you can find most of the bigger apps, like Facebook, Zoom, and your favorite mobile games. However, Gmail, YouTube, or Google Maps aren't available.
Update: The second suspect is in custody. The other was shot and killed by an officer. Both suspects are men. Stay withfor updates today at noon.
