Marietta police are looking for a person believed to be part of a Chattanooga gang, who may be armed.

According to the department, Marietta officers pulled over a Red 2007 Infinity G35 with a stolen license plate Thursday. The car fled into Westside Plaza off Sandtown Road and attempted to exit, crashing into five vehicles and then into a pole.

Four males left the vehicle and fled on foot, and officers arrested three of them with the help of a canine officer, police said. One of the people arrested had a loaded gun. Marietta investigators determined that the vehicle was used in several shootings and a police chase in Chattanooga within the prior 48 hours. They also found the three individuals that were arrested self-identified as Bounty Hunter Blood gang members out of Chattanooga.

Deizmon Gladden, 17, was booked into the Cobb County Adult Detention Center on a misdemeanor charge of obstructing law enforcement, according to jail records. He has since been bonded out. The other two who were arrested were juveniles.
