Police ID man accused of firing on cars on I-185

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

Columbus police identified a man accused of opening fire on motorists as they traveled through Columbus on a Georgia interstate as Timothy Delbridge of Columbus.

Georgia Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge Wayne Smith said Delbridge has undergone surgery for at least one gunshot wound to his shoulder. Hospital officials told The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer (http://bit.ly/10PcomG) that Delbridge was in unsatisfactory condition in the intensive care unit.

Reasons behind the gunfire remained unclear.

Police say responding officers cautiously approached a vehicle on the side of Interstate 185 Monday afternoon, but couldn't tell if there was anyone inside. Police say the suspect had his seat reclined.

Smith says the officers spotted the suspect inside the vehicle when they got up close. Smith said he brandished a weapon, so officers shot him.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
