VIDEO: Atlanta Police Fatally Shoot Suspect in Downtown Gun Battle

Atlanta Police say one person died after an officer-involved shooting in downtown Monday night.

The incident happened on Ted Turner Drive near Baker Street just before 8 p.m. outside the Aloft hotel.

Atlanta police said that officers saw a vehicle driving the wrong way on Ted Turner Drive. As officers made a U-turn to make a traffic stop, the wrong-way vehicle was involved with a crash at Ted Turner and Ivan Allen Blvd.

Police said two men jumped out of the vehicle after the crash and began to run. The driver was apprehended at Williams Street and Ted Turner Drive. The second man ran behind the Aloft hotel with a handgun, police said. He then allegedly began shooting at officers, who returned fire. The suspect was shot multiple times and died, WXIA TV reports.

No officers were injured.

In other news articles reporting this story, it was written that the the family of the deceased 1) knew he has had multiple issues with the police involving weapons and drugs, 2) knew he has been in trouble at school involving weapons and drugs, 3) had no idea why their son was in Georgia, as they are from N or S Carolina, 4) knew their son was running with a bad crowd, because of course, he was a good kid 5) knew their son was reported to be running from and shooting at police, BUT MOM AND DAD COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY POLICE, (who were being shot at by their son's real bullets) DIDN'T USE NON-LETHAL FORCE. REALLY??? This is the type of logic and reason, or lack of, we are dealing with in the UN-United States my brothers and sisters. Stay safe and take care of each other.

Sadly she isn't alone in her ability to blanently ignore logical thinking.
