DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. (AP) _ Police in Douglasville say a man accused of trying to rob an armored car guard at a shopping mall is in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the face.
Police Major Oliver Fladrich says 41-year-old David Broderick of Stone Mountain was charged with aggravated assault and faces other charges stemming from the robbery attempt and shootout at Arbor Place Mall on Monday.
Flarich says Broderick owns a "music memorabilia business'' and apparently has no criminal history.
The Brinks guard, whose identity was not released, was shot in the leg during the shootout that sent a lunchtime crowd at the mall diving for cover. Both he and Broderick were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, about 20 miles away. The guard was released Monday night.
According to Fladrich, detectives have NOT ruled out the possibility that Broderick was working with an accomplice.
