Police: Suspected Baltimore Gang Leader Dead After Standoff

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) — A suspected Baltimore gang leader died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound after a standoff with law enforcement Tuesday afternoon in an Atlanta suburb, police said.

Shots were fired at U.S. marshals and police as they tried to arrest Gary Creek at a Sandy Springs apartment complex, U.S. Marshals Service spokesperson Frank Lempka told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Creek, 39, was tied to multiple murders in the Baltimore area and wanted on federal charges including racketeering. He was the alleged founder and leader of the Triple-C gang, authorities said.
