Jake Smith with Gwinnett County Police said the officer was shot while approaching a suspicious vehicle parked behind Shiloh Middle School in Snellville.

No other officers are hurt and police could not confirm whether or not shots were fired or if any suspects were shot. Authorities say the suspects crashed the vehicle a short time later and witnesses reported seeing as many as four people running from the scene.

Police say Gwinnett County police officer Antwan Toney was rushed in critical condition to Gwinnett Medical Center, where he died.

The police department tweeted news of the officer's death Saturday evening.

The suspect has been described as a black male, about 6 feet tall, wearing green sweat trousers and a gray T shirt. "We thank you for your service and pray with the Gwinnett County Police Department. We are mourning the loss with you".
