Atlanta suspect caught following midtown mass shooting

What started as a deadly shooting inside an Atlanta medical facility Wednesday afternoon ended hours later with the suspect in custody.

Police say 24 year old Deion Patterson pulled a gun from a bag and started shooting. It happened on the 11th floor of the Northside Hospital medical office located on West Peachtree Street in Atlanta's midtown section.

One person died in the shooting. 39 year old Amy St. Pierre was an employee at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Four other women were wounded. They range in age from 25 to 71.

Police say Patterson fled the facility and stole a vehicle which was found in neighboring Cobb County. He was taken into custody nearly 8 hours after the shooting at an apartment across from Truist Park, the Atlanta Braves stadium.

He was taken back to Atlanta where he was booked into the Fulton County Jail.
