Georgia police fatally shoot man accused of wounding officer



MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — Authorities in Georgia say police fatally shot a carjacking suspect after he shot an officer in the head during a chase north of Atlanta. A Georgia Bureau of Investigation statement says Cobb County officers began chasing 37-year-old Martin Humberto Sanchez Fregoso on Thursday night after a driver reported he stole a car. Authorities allege Fregoso fired toward pursuing officers multiple times before escaping on foot and later shooting an officer in the head. The agency says officers returned fire, striking and killing Fregoso. A Cobb County police spokesman says the wounded officer has been treated and released. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is reviewing the shooting.
