Cobb Police are investigating after they say shots were fired during an attempted armed robbery in Vinings on Thursday afternoon.

The incident took place just before 4 p.m. near the intersection of Suffex Green Lane and Paces Walk, which is about a half mile from Cumberland Parkway, according to police spokesman Wayne Delk.

Delk said one of the two people shot was a suspect and additional suspects fled the scene. He said the robbery attempt involved multiple suspects — possibly three.

“The suspects who fled the scene are not in custody,” Delk wrote in an email Thursday night. However, he said there was “no apparent indication of an imminent threat or danger to the public at large.”

Delk said the condition of those wounded was unknown, but initial indications were that one person was shot in the lower torso and the other was wounded in the upper shoulder and neck area.

Everybody remember, for shootings, murders, burglaries, robberies, and assaults of all kinds, the police show up after the fact. They don't keep you safe. They write a report and collect evidence and then either they round up the bad guy or the people in the office attempt to figure out whodunnit. So when the divisive, fearmongering orange thing tries to scare you with commericals about defunding the polices, please bear in mind, the only proactive thing the polices do are write tickets going on fishing expedition into cars for their trump card known as "i smell weed." Are armed vigilante citizen watches an improvement? No. So we stuck with police. Let's help them help us and hold them accountable for lazy work such as reaching for a weapon first thing when a properly trained mouth would be more effective. And as far as writing tickets concerned, the car insurance companies should be in charge or penalizing bad driving by their drivers. In Republican words, let the market sort it out. Leave the police to policing, not to nannying everybody and pulling their old "smell of weed" and "glassy eyes" routines. They got those tag scanners on their cars. I am sure they could automatically mail out a post card about a broken tail light rather than bringing guns to a conflict they start with somebody who might make them "feel threatened"

Your TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) is flaring up again. Some TDS sufferers find relief in chanting over and over, "Orange man bad, Orange man bad...). Sitting in a cool darkened comfortable room and chanting that phrase ten times seems to have given many TDS sufferers relief.

So y'all's story is that the police do keep us safe? The NRA will have you return your NRA membership cards immediately. You are embarrassing them! And here I thought I was the one that tilted a little liberal.
