Businessman Wounded, Suspect Killed In Shootout

One suspect is dead and another man wounded after a shoot out during a home invasion robbery in East Point early Tuesday morning.

Police said two men burst into an apartment at 3029 Dobbs Way around midnight and held several people at gunpoint.

The armed men started ransacking the apartment.

At some point a woman who lives at the apartment, but was outside during the attack called her father for help.

The father, who police describe as a well-known local businessman, rushed to the apartment with his own gun.

When he entered the apartment a gun battle broke out with both the home invaders and the father trading shots. One of the suspects was shot and killed. The father also was hit and wounded.

The apartment residents then attacked the surviving robber and held him until police arrived.

Investigators have not released the names of those involved.
