Several police agencies including bomb squads from the Cobb County Police Department and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are on the scene of a Marietta home occupied by the man who died in a shootout with Alpharetta police Saturday on Georgia 400.
A police spokesman said the bomb squads were called in around noon Monday as a precaution when the Alpharetta Police got information during their investigation that there could be a bomb in the home of 52-year-old Curtis Hicks. Hicks lived alone in the town home at 355 Oak Harbor Trail, where his neighbors described him as recluse.
Baldwin said the investigation could go on for quite a while. Residents in nearby townhouses have already been evacuated as a precaution.
Oak Harbor Trail is just off Bells Ferry Road.
