MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) – Police outside Atlanta say they were shot at while responding to break-in at a gun store.

Marietta police Officer Brittany Wallace tells The Associated Press no injuries were reported and four suspects have been apprehended at the Deercreek Gunshop in Marietta on Tuesday morning.

Wallace said officers responding to a report of a burglary noticed movement on top of and inside the building, and soon apprehended two suspects. She said a third suspect inside the business fired on officers, who returned fire, but no one was hit by the gunshots. She said a fourth suspect came out of the business with his hands up.

Wallace said shortly before 8 a.m. Tuesday that police were using an armored police vehicle to make entry into the business and make sure there was no one else inside.
