A dramatic police chase unfolded in Atlanta on Tuesday afternoon after a hijacked transit bus incident. The chaos began at 45 Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard when a fight broke out, and someone seized control of a Gwinnett County Transit bus.

Numerous Atlanta police officers pursued the stolen bus past Spaghetti Junction. The high-speed chase forced all Interstate 85 lanes to temporarily close as officers strategized to stop the vehicle.

The bus eventually stopped on Hugh Howell Road in DeKalb County, where it was surrounded by law enforcement. A SWAT vehicle positioned itself directly in front of the bus, with Georgia State Patrol, DeKalb County Police, and Atlanta Police all responding to the incident.

Confusion remained over who was driving the bus at the time. Investigations continue to determine whether the bus driver was in control or if another person was behind the wheel.

The suspect, a 39-year-old man, has been detained and is now in police custody. Early reports are claiming one fatality, but these statements have yet to be confirmed by law enforcement.
