Suspect slams into police car, tried to back over DeKalb officer

Posted: Updated:
DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -

A DeKalb County police officer opened fire Tuesday after a suspect driving a stolen car tried to back up over him, DeKalb County police say.

It happened on Tobie Circle at Parkdale Drive in Scottsdale. The suspect – 29-year-old Deangelo Ivey – first rammed the stolen car into the front of a manned police cruiser, DeKalb County Police Capt. Stephen R. Fore said.

Then, Ivey tried to back up over the officer who'd flanked him from the rear, trying to trap him. The DeKalb Co. police chief says the officer responded by opening fire on the suspect.

The police chief says the officer who fired the gun and Ivey were not injured in the altercation. However, the officer in the police car was hurt and taken to a hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

Ivey was taken into police custody, the police chief said. The names of the officers involved have not been made public.
