Police: Search underway in Cobb County after man shoots at officer

Police are patrolling a neighborhood in Cobb County after they said a man shot at an officer Tuesday morning. 

Cobb County police told Channel 2 Action News that officers pulled over two men, and one of them fired shots at an officer. The officer was not hit and is OK. 

They drove off, and police tracked them down to Venetian Way in Mableton. Police said they abandoned the car they were in there.

Channel 2's Rikki Klaus saw police checking cars in the areas around Mableton Parkway to make sure they are not there.

Police brought in a K-9 for the search. They said the dog picked up a scent but lost it.

We're talking to investigators about their search for updates in this story and on Channel 2 Action News at Noon.
