Sherriff Deputy struck by suspect vehicle
 
Just before 4:00 AM this morning a Cobb County Sherriff’s Office (CCSO) Deputy was monitoring security video when he observed a suspect vehicle pull near their building at 32 Waddell Street and appear to break into a parked vehicle.  The deputy walked outside and confronted two suspects who attempted to flee the area.  One suspect ran on foot while another got back into their own vehicle and maneuvered aggressively toward the Deputy, striking him with the vehicle.  The deputy drew his agency issued duty weapon and fired toward the suspect vehicle during the incident.
 
At 4:00 AM Cobb 911 dispatched Marietta Police Department (MPD) Officers to the report of a person struck by a vehicle.  The CCSO Deputy has been transported to Kennestone Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.  MPD Detectives are working the investigation with CCSO Investigators.
 
The investigation is active and ongoing.  Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact MPD Detective Mark Erion at (770) 794-5335.
