(WDEF)  The Chattanooga Police Officers involved in the Shooting that occurred at the Economy Inn this past Saturday night are Officers Kristoffer Tinney, Zachary Moody, and Steven Meador.
     All three officers are currently on administrative leave with pay which is standard procedure for officer-involved shootings.
     The officer that was struck in the forehead by the suspect was not directly involved in the shooting, so his name will not be released at this time.
      Police have now identified the suspect as 36-year-old Antonio Sheffield of Gulfport, Mississippi.
     Police found him at the Economy Inn on Brainerd Road. 
     Sheffield shot at police, assaulted an officer and stole the patrol car with a now cleared suspect in the backseat.
     Georgia officers stopped the car in Whitfield county.
     Sheffield then fatally shot himself in the head.
     Chattanooga police say they're waiting for a Georgia Medical Examiner's Office to determine if officers also shot the suspect during the altercation on Brainerd Road.
