ATLANTA (AP) — Police say a man accused of shooting an Atlanta officer and another man during a traffic stop has been arrested.
Sgt. Warren Pickard tells local media outlets that 26-year-old Anthony Bernard Williams was arrested shortly before noon Wednesday. He has been charged with aggravated assault against a police officer.
Police say Williams was the passenger of a vehicle stopped after officers received a call about a possible carjacking Monday. Police say Williams shot the driver several times after the driver got out and ran toward police.
Pickard says Williams began shooting at police, hitting an officer in the arm twice, before escaping on foot.
