After a nearly eight-hour manhunt Wednesday, authorities captured the suspect who is accused of fatally shooting a woman and wounding four other people in an Atlanta medical building.
The suspected gunman, 24-year-old Deion Patterson, went inside Northside Medical Midtown just before noon and shot the first victim shortly after, Atlanta Police Deputy Chief Charles Hampton said. The suspect used a handgun in the attack, authorities said, before fleeing on foot and hijacking a vehicle nearby.
Patterson faces one count of murder and four counts of aggravated assault, Fulton County jail records show. He waived his right to a first appearance in court, which had been set for Thursday morning, the jail supervisor said.
The mass shooting — the latest in a relentless series of gun violence across America — sent Atlanta's bustling Midtown community into shock as authorities asked residents and patrons visiting the area to shelter in place while police searched for the gunman.
