Three Atlanta police officers were shot while responding to a call Saturday evening, officials said.

The unidentified officers were called to Desoto Avenue SW shortly after 5 p.m., about a call of a man with a gun, Atlanta PD Chief Darin Schierbaum told reporters.

The officers encountered the suspect, who was allegedly armed with a handgun and knife, when shots rang out, Schierbaum said.

The unidentified suspect was killed in the scuffle, according to the chief.

The three members of the Force were taken to Grady Hospital and described as “alert, conscious and breathing,” according to the police.
