The DeKalb County Police Department says a second suspect responsible for shooting a Chamblee officer during a police chase has been arrested.

Just after midnight officers with the Chamblee Police Department located a stolen vehicle used in an armed robbery within the city.

When officers attempted to stop the car, the driver fled and a pursuit ended when the stolen vehicle crashed near Briarcliff Road and Briarcliff Way.

According to police, the suspects fled on foot and fired at officers, hitting one person.

The officer, who has not been identified, was taken to a nearby hospital by medics. At last report, they are stable.

Investigators arrested a suspect at the scene.

Oscar Arreola, 31, was charged with aggravated battery on an officer.

A second suspect, whose name has not yet been released, was arrested later in the day and charged with the same offence.

“We continue to send our prayers to the officer for a speedy recovery,” the department posted on Facebook.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call 911 or the DeKalb County Police Department Homicide/Assault Unit at 770-724-7850.
