According to police, the alleged leader of the Baltimore gang died on Tuesday afternoon in a gunshot wound due to self-harm after a stalemate with law enforcement agencies.

Sandy Springs, Georgia (AP) — Police say a suspected Baltimore gang leader died Tuesday afternoon from a gunshot wound that appeared to have self-confessed after a stalemate with law enforcement agencies in the suburbs of Atlanta. Announced.

Frank Renka, a spokesman for American Marshall Services, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he fired at American Marshall and police trying to arrest Gary Creek in a Sandy Springs condominium.

The 39-year-old Creek was wanted for federal crimes, including blackmail, involved in multiple murders in the Baltimore area. According to officials, he is the founder and leader of the Triple-C gang.

Police in Sandy Springs determined that the suspect had a hostage in the apartment, and the SWAT team reported to the scene. Police broke into the house about three hours after the creek was shot dead and found the creek’s corpse, officials said.

According to police, the three hostages at home were safely released.
