While driving around looking for the subject, the officers found him pointing a gun toward a group of children at a bus stop, Hampton said.  

Police said the suspect fired a gun at the children before the officers could react. One of the officers got out of the patrol car and shot the man. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital and is in stable condition, Hampton said.
