Shootout with police in Georgia ends with suspect, K-9 dead



NORCROSS, Ga. (AP) — A suspect accused of running from Georgia police and shooting at them from a wooded area was killed when officers returned fire. Gwinnett County Police say in a statement that gang task force officers were on patrol in Norcross on Thursday when they spotted a reportedly stolen vehicle with two people inside. The agency says the occupants ran in different directions and a SWAT unit and K-9 were called to search the area. The dog tracked a man into the woods, and he was fatally struck during a shootout. Police say the 5-year-old K-9 was also fatally shot. The suspect and officers haven't been identified. State agents are investigating.
