Man arrested for doing drive by shooting on Police officer. He is not co-operating.
ROSWELL, Ga. —
A suspect is under arrest after police say a Roswell officer was shot at during a patrol early Friday morning.
“He noticed a vehicle slow down and then heard what he thought was either gunfire or fireworks. He looked over and realized it was gunfire coming towards him,” said Roswell police official Zachary Frommer.
McKenzie was not hit.
Frommer says McKenzie chased 21-year-old Victor Mejia Nunez, but the Riverdale man crashed the stolen SUV he was driving.
“Detectives have been speaking to him. He’s been less than forthcoming so we don’t know motive or anything like that,” Frommer said.
Frommer says in light of the attacks on police in Dallas, officers here were already on high alert.
“Then something like this happens and it just perks us up even more,” Frommer said.
Mejia Nunez is facing several charges, including aggravated assault on a police officer. He was in an SUV stolen out of Sandy Springs.
