Toney's death comes after three separate officer-involved shootings across Georgia on Thursday that left two men dead, none of whom were officers. He is considered armed and risky, police said.

A police officer on Monday shot and killed an 18-year-old man accused of fatally shooting another officer near a school in the Atlanta area over the weekend, police said. The suspects initially fled the scene in a black sedan, but they crashed the vehicle less than a mile away and continued their flight on foot.

Other officers arriving on scene opened fire on the vehicle but it is not known whether any of their bullets struck the auto or a suspect. A second suspect, 18-year-old Tafahree Maynard, has been charged with aggravated assault and felony murder but remains on the loose. Police say witnesses reported seeing four people run from the scene. Pretlow was not hit and fled into a wooded area.

Authorities say, two suspects, including one still being sought by police, have been charged in connection with the fatal shooting of a Georgia police officer.

Smith said it is unclear whether anyone in the suspect's auto was hit or how many shots were fired.
