Suspected shooter Deion Patterson was spotted in Cobb County, which is northwest of downtown Atlanta, at around 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, according to Cobb County Police Department Sgt. Wayne Delk.

The deadly shooting at a Midtown Atlanta medical facility happened at around 12:08 p.m., according to police.

Officials were not alerted of the suspect’s location until around 2:30 p.m. That is when they began searching the license plate camera footage, Delk said.

The footage of Patterson was taken from a camera near Windy Ridge Parkway and Heritage Court, which is close to Truist Park. The vehicle allegedly carjacked by Patterson was recovered by the Atlanta Police Department in a parking garage near the baseball stadium, Delk said.

There has been no eyewitness confirmation of the suspect being in Cobb County, Delk added. Police continue to search the area, but there have been no additional sightings on cameras, he said.

Truist Park, which is the home of the Atlanta Braves professional baseball team, is about 11 miles from the scene of the shooting in Midtown Atlanta.
