At the request of the Georgia State Patrol, Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents are responding to an officer-involved shooting in Hapeville.
According to a news release, on March 19, a state trooper assisted Atlanta Police officers in pursuit of a vehicle bearing a stolen license plate.
GBI spokeswoman Nelly Miles said the trooper attempted several Pursuit Intervention Technique, or PIT, maneuvers, which are executed to contact, rotate and bring a vehicle to a stop.
“The vehicle continued on and drove in the direction of the trooper,” she said in a statement. “The trooper fired multiple times and struck the subject.”
The suspect is in stable condition at Grady Memorial Hospital, Miles said.
The trooper was not injured.
