Georgia ‘Blue Alert’ suspect still at large after investigators find car


The man at the center of a “blue alert” issued in Georgia remains at large, even though investigators have discovered the car he was supposed to be traveling in.

Brentson Thomas, 32, is wanted for seriously injuring a detention officer and killing another person in a shooting near an apartment complex in Henry County on Friday, authorities said.

Investigators found a gray Toyota they believed Thomas was driving after fleeing law enforcement, but did not specify where it was.

Georgian “blue alerts” are issued to help arrest those suspected of injuring or killing officers. Anyone who sees the subject of a “blue alert” should not approach, but rather call 911 immediately.
