A man accused of shooting five women and killing one in an Atlanta hospital waiting room has been arrested after a manhunt, police said.
The man has been identified as Deion Patterson, 24. He was taken into custody on Wednesday evening, the The Atlanta Police Department said.
Details of the case were expected at a press conference.
Earlier, Atlanta Police Chief Darin Schierbaum told reporters that officers were called at 12:08 p.m. to a medical facility at Northside Hospital. The suspect allegedly killed a 39-year-old woman and injured four others, ages 71, 56, 39 and 25, before leaving the building, officials said.
Authorities believe he hijacked a vehicle a short distance away and fled as law enforcement descended on the area, the chief said.
An alert was raised and authorities announced a $10,000 reward for his arrest.
The search extended to neighboring Cobb County.
The motive for the shooting was unclear, the chief said.
