Video: 2 Ga. cops' narrow escape from hail of bullets

Dash cam shows two officers evading a man they said was shooting to kill

By PoliceOne Staff

DULUTH, Ga. — Dash cam shows suspected robbers shoot at two police officers who narrowly escape the hail of gunfire.

Police responded to a 911 call of a robbery at a massage studio last week, WSBTV reported.  When the first responding officer arrived, an armed man who police said was shooting to kill pointed his gun at her.

In the video, she calls for help. “He’s armed, pointing the gun at me,” the officer says. “Sir, get down on the ground, get down on the (expletive) ground.”

A second officer is seen diving to avoid the bullets as a puff of dust rises after it hits the ground only a few feet from him. Neither officer was hurt, according to reports.

Police said the officers gave the shooter a chance to give up the fight.

"The officers give the individual the opportunity to surrender," Maj. Don Woodruff said. "(In the video) she tells him to put the gun down several times."

The gunman and a female passenger left the scene in their vehicle, and police are seeking the pair.

"These people are obviously — by their behavior — are very dangerous and need to be taken off the street as soon as possible," Woodruff said.
