REDAN, Ga. (AP) - A man has been taken into custody following an armed robbery and shootout with authorities in DeKalb County.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Friday reported the incident began when an unidentified man robbed a Family Dollar store in Redan about 9:45 a.m. and shot at responding officers.

Officials say the suspect kicked in the rear door of a house after fleeing the scene of the armed robbery.

Authorities surrounded the home and the suspect surrendered without incident Friday afternoon.

Three nearby schools were locked down during the manhunt. Authorities say no officers were injured, and it was not immediately clear whether the suspect was wounded.
