 – The name of the man involved in an on-going narcotics case who was shot and killed by a deputy after investigators said he tried to run them over while serving a warrant has been released.

Investigators said Joel Gatu Muturi, 23, of Marietta, tried to use his car to run over members of the Cobb Marietta Smyrna Narcotics squad. It happened 6:50 p.m. Thursday at the Liberty Pointe Apartments located in the 700 block of Franklin Gateway SE.

“When they were here at the apartment, they had contact with the suspect in that case. The suspect attempted to run over a deputy sheriff in a vehicle. Shots were fired and the suspect is deceased,” said Quigley.

The sheriff’s office said they recovered a significant amount of drugs and weapons as the scene. They could not immediately disclose the type of narcotics, but said “several” different drugs were found.

“Our undercover narcotics unit had run a series of investigations. This is one they were working very heavily and they were certainly looking to get this individual into custody. And did everything they could to prevent this type of event from happening,” said Quigley.

There were no significant injuries to the other law enforcement personnel involved. Quigley said the deputy who fired at the suspect will be placed on administrative leave until the completion of the investigation, a standard practice in this type of incident.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been asked to investigate the deputy-involved shooting.
