CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. - The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office and other agencies ended a search for suspects who were wanted out of Alabama.
The two suspects, identified as 30-year-old Jeffrey Danner and 27-year-old William Kirkland, were arrested Sunday, FOX has learned.
Authorities attempted to stop a vehicle Sunday at 137 Leo Taylor Lane in Ball Ground, Georgia. The address is located near the LAT sportswear facility.
Deputies attempted to make the traffic stop because the car's license plates were a match to another crime.
At some point the suspects ran into the woods and gunshots were fired, deputies say. Authorities later confirmed to FOX 5's Eric Perry that Kirkland was shot by a SWAT member.
An ambulance was seen leaving the area after the shooting.
Danner is now in custody at the Cherokee Adult Detention Center charged with four counts of aggravated assault against a police officer, fleeing and attempting to elude police, and simple battery against a police officer. He is being held without bond.
