December 19, 2017

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — A gang member accused of shooting at a police officer in Georgia has been arrested after several days on the run.

News outlets report Kevin Scott Sosebee was arrested Friday in connection with the three shots fired at a Cobb County officer who was sitting in his patrol car last Tuesday morning. Authorities say Sosebee is a member of the Ghost Face Gangsters.

Cobb County sheriff’s spokesman Glenn Daniel said the officer had tried to stop Sosebee’s vehicle. The officer was uninjured.

Authorities received a tip that Sosebee was hiding in a trailer Friday. He was located and led police on a chase across two counties before being taken into custody.

He’s charged with several offenses, including probation violation and aggravated assault. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.
