Toney, was shot and killed Saturday, while investigating a suspicious vehicle in Snellville. Police say the suspects fled in the vehicle, but one man was later captured. After a 2-day manhunt, they also found the man believed to

have shot the gun that killed Officer Toney. Reports indicate that 18 year old Tafahree Maynard was found this morning about a mile from where Officer Toney was shot and killed. Police say Maynard was shot and killed by

SWAT when he refused to obey commands. They go on to say that a taser was initially used on Maynard, but they shot after determining that he was armed with a blade from a mower.

19 year old Isaiah Pretlow, Maynard's apparent accomplice, was taken into custody shortly after the shooting of Toney, and is charged with aggravated assault.
