East Cobb Home Invasion Suspects Charged
Three men are being held without bond for Wednesday's shootings in Fox Hills and car chase along Lower Roswell Road.
Cobb Police Spokesman Sgt. Dana Pierce issued a release at 1 p.m. Wednesday indicating that Quinton Castile Gatling, 26, and Dennis Christopher Ivory, 29, both of Marietta, and Ronald McCall, 27, of Fairburn, are being held without bond on the Cobb County Adult Detention Center.
They have each been charged with burglary, armed robbery and aggravated assault.
According to Cobb Police, three male suspects entered a home at 272 Lamplighter Lane in the Fox Hills subdivision late Wednesday morning, demanding property from the occupants.
Pierce said that two of the three male occupants at the home were shot during the incident, and a third male at the home pursued the suspects, who fled the residence in a silver Dodge Charger.
Pierce said the two victims were taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Cobb Police said the third male chased the suspects in his own vehicle, with both cars racing westbound along Lower Roswell Road.
Police began receiving 911 calls about the incident and conducted a traffic stop at the intersection of Lower Roswell Road and the South Marietta Parkway.
When the suspects' vehicle reached the traffic stop, one of the three men fled on foot toward the nearby Eastgate Shopping Center, accoring to police.
A Cobb police officer chasing the suspect on foot suffered a fractured leg after colliding with a police cruiser in the shopping center parking lot, Pierce said. He added that the injured officer was identified as Officer D.L. Malone. The suspect was captured a short time later.
Cobb Police are seeking the public's help as they continue to investigate the incident. Call 770-499-3945 with information.
