Atlanta Police Catch Man With Multiple Guns

( A 22-year-old man was arrested in Atlanta on Wednesday in a grocery store. The man was apprehended carrying a rifle and was later found to be wearing body armor and carrying a total of six guns.

Thankfully nobody was injured, but the man’s motives were not immediately clear.

The man, Rico Marley, was charged with six counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of or attempt to commit certain felonies and five counts of criminal attempt to commit a felony.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Marley was interviewed by medical professionals and given a psychiatric evaluation.

Police officers were called by managers at the story at roughly 1:30 p.m. after the man was seen with a rifle in the restroom of a Publix. He was understood to be out shooting for groceries for somebody else.

Charles Russell, who saw Marley, said he saw an AR-15.

“That kind of startled me with the events that recently happened in the grocery store up in Colorado,” he added, referencing the tragic mass shooting by an Islamic radical in Boulder, Colorado on Monday.

WSBTV reporter Matt Johnson published an image of the guns and ammo found on the suspect in the Atlantic Station Publix.

He revealed that police originally believed he was armed with only five guns, but an additional handgun was later found.

Marley was immediately identified as he left the restroom and officers swiftly took him into custody.

Police Officer Anthony Grant told the Journal-Constitution that a “witness observed the male and alerted store management, who then notified police.”

On Thursday, Marley waived his first appearance before the judge. He was labeled a “danger” to the local community and given no bond.
