FOREST PARK, Ga. — A suspect is now in custody after three people were shot, one of whom died, in Forest Park on Friday in an incident that sparked a citywide lockdown on Friday.

 

Suspect in custody after hours-long search, chase after Forest Park triple shooting, police say

Forest Park Police said  Victor Demetrious Baymon was taken into custody in Cobb County after a brief chase and an hours-long manhunt.

 

"Chief Brandon Criss and members of the Forest Park Police Department sincerely appreciate the help of all agencies with apprehending the suspect. Our agency remains committed to ensuring the safety and welfare of all of our citizens," according to a statement from Forest Park Police.

 

As of Friday evening, the lockdowns at schools and city buildings have been lifted.

 

In a press conference, Forest Park Police Chief Brandon Criss said Baymon followed his ex-girlfriend as she went to a tax preparation office -- ultimately shooting the individual preparing the taxes and then a worker inside a convenience store.

 

Criss said Baymon then carjacked a man, crashed that vehicle at an apartment complex about a block away, and then carjacked a woman. The chief said Baymon made it as far as the 4300 block of Jonesboro Road before he got out and shot a construction worker at random.


 

"This investigation is very active, as you guys can tell. We got three active crime scenes, and we're trying to process those crime scenes as well as gather as much information as we can. And once I have some additional information regarding that, I will definitely share," Criss said in the press conference.

 

There was no identifying information available about the victims as of Friday afternoon; Chief Criss said the deceased victim was the tax preparer. The chief added the other two victims had gone into surgery at hospitals.

 

Criss asked the public that if they see Baymon, to call 911 and give a location and description of the suspect and "allow us to do our job by apprehending him."
