FBI Agent Shoots GA Gang Suspect in Vehicle Dragging Incident

January 05, 2018  | 

An FBI agent was forced to open fire early Friday after a wanted man ran from a Sandy Springs hotel, hopped in a pickup truck and dragged the agent for a quarter-mile, according to an agency spokesman.

The agent and the wounded man were taken to local hospitals, FBI spokesman Kevin Rowson said in an emailed statement.

While the agent’s injuries were not life-threatening, the man is in surgery, according to the FBI. His condition is unknown. 

The incident started shortly after 6 a.m. in the lobby of the Wyndham Atlanta Galleria when the FBI agent tried to arrest the man in connection with a gang investigation, Rowson said.

The arrest is the latest in an investigation that earlier yielded an indictment against dozens of members and associates of the “Nine Trey Gangsters” Oct. 12.

The wounded driver “was the lone suspect that was not apprehended from that investigation,” Rowson told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
