Atlanta police officer fires shot at Midtown robbery suspect

An Atlanta Police officer opens fire on a robbery suspect. Now investigators are trying to determine if anyone was hit by the bullet.

Police tell FOX 5 that they were investigating a robbery earlier in the evening in Midtown Atlanta. The officer was giving the male victim a courtesy ride when the victim spotted the people who robbed him.

The suspects were in two separate cars. One was in a black Camero, the other in a silver or gray Dodge Challenger. 

Investigators say when the officer tried to pull over the cars, one of them accelerated, leaving skid marks on the road.  That's when the officer fired a single shot.

Police block off the Midtown road during the investigation.

Police don't know if the suspects were hit. They're checking with local hospitals to see if anyone comes in suffering from a gunshot wound.
