COBB COUNTY, Ga. — A police chase that ended in the death of an armed robbery suspect on Interstate 75 south led police to shut down the highway for almost six hours Sunday.

The suspect, who was not named by police, allegedly robbed a Marathon station on Bells Ferry Road at Victoria Road in Woodstock. According to a statement from Lt. Jay Baker with the Cherokee sheriff's office, the suspect in the armed robbery and his vehicle matched the description in another armed robbery in Cobb County earlier Sunday morning.
