The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been called in to handle the investigation after SCMPD responded to reports of two officers shot on Ogeechee Road at about midnight Tuesday. Officers attempting a traffic stop were fired upon and returned gunfire, fatally shooting Tyrie Cuyler, 25.

Officers Ruben Colon and Michael Gonzales also were shot and taken to hospital., but their wounds were not life threatening, officials say.

Two other officers, Daniel Kang and John Hauber, were not wounded in the arrest.
