ATLANTA (AP) - Authorities are investigating after a man was shot by a police officer during a traffic stop.
Police spokesman Carlos Campos says an officer stopped a vehicle in a gas station parking lot around 5 p.m. Thursday. Campos says the officer ordered the driver to roll down his window and put the car in park, but the driver refused and tried to drive away.
Campos says the officer drew his gun and fired at some point. Campos couldn't say why the officer fired but said the details of the shooting are under investigation.
Campos says the man had outstanding warrants in Clayton County for child cruelty charges and probation violation on a weapons charge.
The man was hospitalized in critical but stable condition. Campos says charges against him are pending.
