MARIETTA, Ga. -- Marietta police say a fugitive who tried to fire his gun at an officer has been apprehended.
The incident began early in the morning on Jan. 16, when the Marietta police officer was dispatched to a domestic dispute call in the 1000 block of Franklin Road.
According to police, the officer spotted Keyandre Funches in the parking lot and chased him. Funches ducked behind a tree, then "raised his firearm in a threatening manner," according to Marietta police spokesman David Baldwin. Evidence shows Funches tried to fire at the officer, but his gun malfunctioned or misfired.
Funches, 25, was taken into custody in Mississippi on Friday, according to Baldwin.
