Robbery Suspect Shot by College Park Police

A robbery suspect was injured when he was shot by a police officer in College Park early Monday morning, according to police. The shooting happened outside the Baymont Inn & Suites on Old National Highway.

The shooting happened as officers were investigating an apparent robbery at a nightclub in the area. Police followed three men who left that scene to a parking lot outside the hotel. That’s when shots were fired, according to College Park Police Chief Keith Meadows.

Two officers fired shots, investigators say. One of the suspects was shot in the leg and arm. His injuries are described as minor. Two other suspects in the robbery were taken into custody. No police officers were injured.

The GBI was called in to investigate the shooting. A gun was found in the parking lot where the shots were fired, police say.
