On Wednesday night, Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens said that this was a horrible act of gun violence, but an equally horrifying act. He added that they will take more action for the rights of our citizens and provide them with a safe and secure life ahead. In a news conference announcing the arrest, Hampton said that the suspect spent about two minutes in the medical center before he left on foot and went to a nearby Shell station. There, the gunman found and took an unattended pickup truck. He added that roughly 20 minutes later, cameras picked up the vehicle’s tag number, and police were alerted the suspect was in Cobb County. He added that technology played a huge role, but unfortunately, technology doesn’t do any good without people who are determined to capture an individual that would do something like this. Including the shooting at the Atlanta medical facility, there have been at least 191 mass shootings in the United States this year, according to the Gun Violence Archive, which like PKB, defines a mass shooting as one in which four or more people are shot, including the shooter.

Atlanta Police Department Statement on Deion Patterson

The residents told us that the suspect was captured inside a gated condominium complex in Cobb County, a little more than 10 miles north of where the shooting unfolded. Christy Colwell, a Waterford Place resident said that dogs barking within the complex caused her concern that the suspect could be hiding in the pool area, which includes a gazebo. She informed a police officer who was at the facility responding to a noise call. A 911 call operator alerted officers to a call that they believed had the potential to be the suspect. A high-level source with the Atlanta Police Department told PKB News that, according to Patterson’s mother, the suspect was seeking a new treatment after being dissatisfied with the care he was receiving from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Three injured women were in critical condition and underwent emergency surgery, one was stable when they arrived at Grady Memorial Hospital.
