Crime Suspects Opened Fire at Officers Throughout High-Speed Chase Spanning Multiple Jurisdictions in Georgia: Authorities
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.
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.

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.
Yes, the Georgia election law is that bad
The debate over whether Georgia’s law really suppresses voting reveals just how imperiled American democracy is.In the New York Times, Nate Cohn concluded that “the law’s voting provisions are unlikely to significantly affect turnout or Democratic chances.” Slate’s Will Saletan notes that some provisions really are troubling, but that the bill also contains good provisions and that critics have “overhyped” their concerns. Brian Riedl, a senior fellow at the conservative Manhattan Institute, writes that “the idea this is an epic war on voting rights is simply absurd.
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.
