2 suspects on the run after shootout with Georgia officers

GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Police in north Georgia say they're searching for a man and woman after a gun battle involving police officers.

Gainesville police Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said Saturday that two officers were hurt in the Friday night confrontation, but neither officer was shot.

Holbrook tells The Times of Gainesville that both officers were treated at a hospital for minor injuries and have been released.

A 911 caller said the man was dragging the female down the road, and the first officer to arrive began fighting with the man. Police said the woman struck the officer in the head with a gun before the shooting began.

Police said the man and woman, both 20, are suspected of aggravated assault on a peace officer.

Gainesville is 45 miles (72 kilometers) northeast of Atlanta.

Family sues after child, 5, killed in rotating restaurant

ATLANTA (AP) - The family of a 5-year-old boy killed when he became caught in a rotating Atlanta restaurant is suing the company, saying it failed to prevent a "longstanding safety hazard."

The lawsuit comes after Charlie Holt died in the Sun Dial, a restaurant atop the 73-story Westin Peachtree Plaza hotel.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the child and his parents were visiting Atlanta from Charlotte, North Carolina, when he became caught between a wall and table as the dining room rotated April 14.

The lawsuit says the restaurant had no protections to stop children from getting close to a dangerous area, or to stop the floor's rotation if a child became trapped.

Jeff Flaherty, a spokesman for parent firm Marriott International Inc., told the newspaper the company had no comment.

Cold case suspect in Tucson slayings found in Atlanta

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A Tucson man wanted in two separate killings is in custody after evading capture for 13 years.

Tucson police say 38-year-old Damion Smith was apprehended this week in Georgia and is awaiting extradition.

Authorities say detectives at the time believed Smith was involved in the murders of 35-year-old Alex Grijalva and 24-year-old Richard Vega.

Grijalva was found dead of blunt force trauma in an apartment in June 2004. Vega was stabbed to death in an apartment in December 2004.

Warrants for Smith for first-degree murder were issued in both cases.

Authorities say the U.S. Marshals began helping police last month and found Smith was living in Atlanta and using the name of his brother, who is in prison.

Smith was located Thursday in an Atlanta residence.

Georgia agency sees better season for hunting ducks, geese

SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (AP) - Georgia wildlife officials are predicting improved conditions this fall for hunting ducks and geese.

Waterfowl hunting season opened Saturday in Georgia. Department of Natural Resources biologist Greg Balkcom says state-managed wetlands that were dry a year ago now have plenty of water thanks to summer rains and a wet tropical season.

Balkcom said in a news release that hunters "should have no problems this year finding hunting spots" with a healthy, wet habitat for ducks and geese.

The hunting season for ducks and geese runs through Nov. 26, then resumes Dec. 9 through Jan. 28. A Georgia hunting license, a Georgia migratory bird license and a federal duck stamp are required to hunt waterfowl in the state.
