Atlanta Police are looking for two men involved in the shooting of an off-duty Georgia State University police officer on Sunday during a robbery attempt.
According to police, around 9:30 p.m. on July 30, a woman who works for the GSU police department was walking on Donnelly Avenue with her friend when a man on foot and a man on a bike approached them. One of the suspects attempted to rob them. The off-duty officer fought back and the other suspect pulled out a gun and shot the off-duty officer in her hand and torso. The officer pulled out her gun and shot back.
“The off-duty officer was transported to Grady Hospital in stable condition,” Atlanta Police said. “The second female was not injured. At this time, it is not clear whether either of the suspects was struck. Investigators are working to identify the suspects and the investigation continues.”
