UPDATE: DPD – Resident Report of Armed Robbery was Actually a Suspect Fleeing From Arrest WarrantDecatur Metro | August 5, 2013
UPDATE II: From DPD…
On 08/05/13 at approximately 10:24 am, DeKalb County Sheriff’s Deputies were attempting to serve an arrest warrant at a residence in the 200 block of Cambridge Avenue when the wanted person fled on foot toward Oakhurst Park and deputies pursued. A taser was deployed and the suspect was taken into custody without further incident. The suspect and a deputy were treated on scene for superficial injuries.
UPDATE: DPD’s Jennifer Ross says…”Standby for the real story…it was NOT a robbery and/or shooting.” Stay tuned.
Waiting to hear back from Decatur PD, but Arriba reports “gunshots and an attempted robbery near Oakhurst Park this morning (possibly on Leyden.)” He says that his wife “called 911, and the police were there immediately. They apprehending one suspect, the other one got away.”
He also followed up to report that “the police dispatcher called my wife back and said there was a second incident on Cambridge, also to make sure these weren’t the same incidents.”, so there could have been two events this morning.
Anne also wrote in and reported “my friends were playing tennis and saw the robbery in progress, heard shots, and called 911 leading police to the house.
Stay tuned. We’ve followed up with Decatur PD and will let you know when we hear back.
