Atlanta shooting suspect fleeing in Sandy Springs stopped on GA-400, police say

The crash happened on Ga. 400 at I-285.

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — Sandy Springs police were involved in a crash with a shooting suspect on Ga. 400 at Interstate 285 Friday morning, they said. 

Sandy Springs Police Sgt. Ortega said Atlanta Police officers alerted them of Ibnisa Durr, who is wanted in connection to a shooting from back in May, where they say he shot someone several times.

Durr, 25, also has a record in Fulton County Jail that dates back to 2013.

Ortega said Durr was spotted near the Pointe at Canyon Ridge Apartments around 10:20 a.m. From there, Ortega said officers began to pursue Durr's car and tried to box him in. 

"However, in an attempt to elude us, he collided into two of our patrol units, to include one with a K9 inside. The perpetrator then fought with officers before being taken into custody," Sandy Springs Police said in a post. 

Those officers sustained minor injuries in the crash and the K9 was not harmed, police said. One officer was hospitalized with a head injury, police said but is expected to be okay. However, Ortega said thousands of dollars in damage was done to the two police vehicles involved in the chase, which reportedly only lasted a few seconds.

Police said Durr was armed when they caught up with him but did not say if it was the weapon used in the shooting. Ortega said Atlanta Police would test the gun as potential evidence in the Alison Court shooting in May.

Ortega also said that Durr is a rapper who goes by the name Paper Lovee.

Ortega said Durr would face several traffic charges and felony obstruction connected to the Sandy Springs chase. More charges are pending for Durr in Atlanta.

“If you come to our city to commit a crime, if you come to our city to put people in danger, our officers in danger, damage our property, well will go after you," Ortega said. "We will arrest you.”
