A manhunt is going on Sunday for a suspect in killing a police at a suburban Atlanta school after he and his partner responded to a report about a suspicious vehicle, the authorities said.

Tafahree Maynard, 18, is regarded as “armed and dangerous” and is believed to be the gunman who opened fire without warning on Saturday afternoon at police officer Gwinnett County Antwan Toney and his partner, police said.

Maynard is suspected of crime and aggravated Toney’s assassination, who had recently celebrated her 30th birthday with her colleagues in Las Vegas and was only six days away from marking her third anniversary as a member of the department, officials said.

“Before they could even get to the vehicle, the shots rang out” from the inside of the car, Smith said and added that such things did not happen “99.999 percent” of the time.

“That’s how it’s just tragic,” Smith said.
