Police have caught teenage shooter Marcellus Brooks, the man behind the Atlanta shootings from yesterday. While at first Brooks managed to get away from the scene of the crime, a large manhunt organized by the APD managed to track the shooting suspect down.

In a related report by The Inquisitr, according to witnesses the Atlanta shootings were quite chaotic and involved the gunman shooting at a crowd of young people:

"[T]the gunman opened fire at a group of 20 students. Witnesses say they were running away from the gunman and five teenagers were hit by the gunfire. Four of the victims were shot in the lower body, and one took a bullet to the chest."
"For me, I saw tension. I knew something was going to happen. I was expecting a giant fight. I wasn't expecting gunshots."
"Two were laying on the ground. A female and a male were put into an ambulance. They were moving, but that's why I didn't think it was life-threatening. The paramedics were working on them."
"Grady's Marcus Trauma Center received five patients this afternoon from a shooting in Southwest Atlanta. At this time four patients are listed as stable, one patient is still being evaluated."
