Man shot by Cobb police after allegedly attacking Publix employees, cops

By Asia Simone Burns
A man was shot by a Cobb County police officer after authorities said he attacked several people Sunday morning, including grocery store employees and law enforcement officers.

The incident began with a 911 call from the Publix shopping center on Alabama Road about 7 a.m., Cobb police spokesman Sgt. Wayne Delk said in a news release. Officers were sent to the store after someone reported a man was physically attacking employees as they arrived, he said. The man, identified by the GBI as 22-year-old Jeffery Thomas Moore of Woodstock, was gone by the time police arrived. However, the department received more 911 calls reporting a man was attacking people in nearby parking lots, according to Delk.

When police found the man, he attacked several officers, leaving one injured, Delk said. Moore refused to comply with the officers’ commands and ran away, according to GBI spokeswoman Natalie Ammons. Police later found him hiding in a yard on Bedell Road. Moore once again disobeyed orders when police tried to arrest him, Ammons said. Officers tried to shock him with a Taser while trying to take him into custody.

One of the officers fired his weapon at Moore, according to Ammons. He was hit, but managed to run away once more, she said.

By Sara Coello Scoello
North Charleston police said they’re not planning to a charge a 16-year-old girl with shooting her mother’s husband after hearing she did so in self-defense.

The teenager, whose name wasn’t released due to her age, was on Remount Road with her mother and stepfather when he attacked the adult woman outside of a car, Deputy Chief Scott Deckard said.

The man passed his stepdaughter a handgun as she and her mother got into the vehicle, according to Deckard. When he grabbed a piece of concrete and hit the car with it, threatening to kill the pair, the girl shot him in the head and shoulder.

He was taken to Trident Medical Center, according to the report, where he is recovering.

An off-duty officer shot a man who lunged at him with a pair of scissors, Philadelphia police said.

The off-duty officer, a 3-year veteran with the 17th district, was visiting a home on the 2500 block of South 7th Street Saturday around 6 p.m. when he heard the sound of breaking glass outside.

The officer looked out the window and spotted a man in his 60’s overturning recycling bins.

Police said the officer walked toward the man, identified himself and told him to stop. The man in his 60’s then allegedly lunged at the officer with a pair of scissors.

The officer then pulled out a gun and fired four shots, police said. The man was shot three times in the wrist, leg and left side. He was taken to Jefferson University Hospital where he is currently in critical condition.

The officer was not injured during the incident. Police said he will be taken off street duty pending a review by Internal Affairs.

Ed, thank you for the edit!
That story is just too damn sad and infuriating to let it go.
The narrative seems to focus on the criminal and not his victims, which imho, is worthy of admonishment of the jurnos.

As Alice said, “Curiouser and curiouser.”
The hubby hands step daughter a gun, then proceeds to attack the car and Mom, and threaten Mom and daughter.

Stop and reread that:
Hands stepdaughter the gun, then attacks.

That boy’s cornbread ain’t done in the middle.


Noted that too. Concrete in a gunfight after GIVING AWAY HIS GUN! People unclear on the concept…


“Stop and reread that:”

Yeah, that’s just what I did, three times before it really soaked in. The guy’s cheese slipped off his cracker.


Suicide by kid? Wow.

At this point I’ll even take the cheap trifecta of wounded. Not too smart to hand a firearm to someone who then shoots your sorry ass! Any bastard that would raise a hand to a woman should be shot!!


“Meth or PCP?”

Bath salts if he was scantily clad.
Meth if he was wearing panties.
So I’ll take (not literally) PCP for the win.

Other than the taxpayer having to feed, house, and take care of health related matters, a poor man’s trifecta is an acceptable score…for a Tuesday. Would have preferred that the trash had been taken all the way out AND disposed of, but we can always hope for a nice staph infection, or a broken taint with food poisoning (bad weenie) from the BTJ&T Deli. Tomorrow is another day.

No linky for the American Classic? sigh… Wonder how many hits I’ll get if I Google Foo that? Who knows, that may take me to web sites about hamburgers, hot dogs, apple pie, or girls that live next door.

That is a beautiful example of St JMB (Howitzer be his name) handicraft. If I only hadn’t lost mine in the swamp during that boating accident …………..
