DEKALB COUNTY, GA. - A man who was shot to death late Wednesday night by DeKalb police has been identified.
According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Quintas Harris, 27, had fired a gun at two other men just before police arrived.
The GBI is investigating the late-night shooting, which happened in the 1100 block of Maple Walk Circle.
According to DeKalb Police Chief James Conroy, officers were responding to several calls of a "demented person" discharging a firearm at Maple Walk apartments.
The first officer arrived and confronted the suspect about five minutes later. According to Conroy, that's when the suspect ran and tried to get into a vehicle.
"Within moments we had four officers total on the scene," Conroy said. "They confronted the suspect near the vehicle and exchanged gunfire with the suspect."

During the exchange, one officer was shot in the hand and the suspect was struck multiple times - reportedly as all four officers opened fire.
Conroy said the officers rendered aid and performed CPR on the suspect until DeKalb Fire Rescue arrived. He also said the suspect was rushed to a local hospital in critical condition, where he would later die.
The officer was also taken to an area hospital. Though his exact condition wasn't provided, he was listed as stable.
All officers have been placed on administrative leave pending the GBI's findings, per department policy.
