According to CBS46, officers responded to a carjacking at gunpoint call in Downtown and, once they found the vehicle in question, a chase began. Three of the four suspects in the vehicle were apprehended when the stolen car was ditched near the intersection of Moores Mill Road and Devonshire Place in Buckhead. Police say one of the suspects fired a shot at one of the officers but no one was injured.
