SNELLVILLE, Ga. — The Latest on the fatal shooting of a Georgia police officer (all times local):

1:44 a.m.

Authorities say two teen-aged suspects from Snellville, including one still being sought by police, were both in a vehicle during a shooting that left one George police officer dead.

Gwinnett County Police said in a statement early Sunday that they believe 18-year-old Tafahree Maynard fatally shot 30-year-old Officer Antwan Toney, who was responding to a suspicious vehicle parked near a middle school in the Snellville area. Police say Maynard remains at large and should be considered armed and dangerous.

A second suspect, 19-year-old Isaiah Pretlow, faces an aggravated assault charge related to an incident following the fatal shooting.

Police say Pretlow drove the vehicle from the scene, crashed a short distance away and fled along with other occupants. An officer who was searching the area encountered Pretlow about 3 p.m. Police say Pretlow pointed a gun at the officer, who fired shots. Pretlow was not hit and fled into a wooded area. He was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals about 11:30 p.m.

Snellville is about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of Atlanta.
