UPDATE: The Fort Oglethorpe Police Department said Shaun Sisk was shot at a laundromat after a citizen recognized him as a wanted man.

Police responded Tuesday morning to a call regarding a confrontation at the Wash Daze Coin Laundry on Lafayette Road Tuesday morning.  The citizen said the situation escalated when they recognized Sisk as an armed robbery and theft suspect.

Sisk had left the scene in a stolen vehicle by the time police arrived.  The citizen explained that he had attempted to keep Sisk at the laundromat until help could arrive, but Sisk escaped.

Police said the citizen fired two shots from their personal gun because they felt endangered by Sisk's actions.

Sisk and the stolen Toyota pickup truck were found on Frawley Street in East Ridge. Police in East Ridge said Sisk had arrived at a home complaining of a gunshot wound. He was arrested on several outstanding warrants. East Ridge Police said those warrants included:

  • Aggravated Domestic Assault
  • Motor Vehicle Thefts
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Felony Evading Arrest

The GBI has joined the Fort Oglethorpe Police Department to investigate the confrontation and shooting.

"The Fort Oglethorpe Police Department wishes to thank the numerous law enforcement agencies in the metro region that also participated in the search for and arrest of Shaun Sisk," a Fort Oglethorpe Police Department spokesperson said.
