    3 men, one woman attack waiter walking in Midtown

    By BILL MONTGOMERY
    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    Published on: 05/30/06

    A pack of would-be robbers including, a pregnant 17-year-old, figured a Midtown waiter walking to his girlfriend's house Monday night would be an easy mark, according to police.

    But, in Thomas Autry, 36, the bandits picked the wrong victim, said Atlanta police homicide Detective Danny Stephens. The former Marine, cornered by his pursuers on Penn Avenue at 4th Street, fought back with a pocket knife in a deadly melee that left the young woman dead and a man in his late teens seriously injured at a hospital.

    The woman was identified as Amy Martin, who just had a birthday May 17, said Investigator Mark Gilbeau with the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office. An autopsy was expected to be completed Tuesday afternoon. "Cause of death will be stab wounds, but we don't know how many yet," Gilbeau said.

    The teenager lived in an apartment at 3000 Stone Hogan Connector in southwest Atlanta, south of Greenbriar Mall near East Point, Gilbeau said. A young man also stabbed in the robbery attempt remained in critical condition, he added.

    Autry suffered minor injuries. The identities of the surviving suspects, who Stephens said are believed to be linked to "a lot" of pedestrian robberies in Midtown and Virginia-Highland, were not released. They face aggravated assault and robbery charges, police said.

    Autry will not be charged, Stephens said. "It was a clear case of self defense."

    Stephens said Autry had left his job at the Jocks & Jills restaurant in Midtown and was walking along Penn Avenue when a blue Cadillac pulled alongside and three men, one armed with a shotgun, and the woman jumped from the car.

    "This group had robbed two men on Piedmont earlier Monday night, taking a video camera and a cellphone," Stephens said.

    "Autry takes off running, and they chase him. During the chase, Autry's trying to get into his backpack to get a pocket knife, which slows him down," Stephens said.

    During the chase, Autry repeatedly yelled "fire, fire," which Stephens said attracted nearby residents' attention.

    Grabbing the knife from his backpack, Autry managed to kick the shotgun from the man's hands and stabbed the woman in the chest, fatally wounding her. Stephens said. In the melee, Autry also stabbed one of the male suspects. Another suspect attempted to shoot Autry with a .380 pistol, which misfired, Stephens said.

    The suspects ran back to the Cadillac and drove to Atlanta Medical Center, where police arrested them. The young woman, "about two weeks pregnant," was pronounced dead at the hospital, Stephens said.

    If a woman is 2 weeks late starting their cycle they typically realize they might be pregnant. Then again this woman doesn't seem like the responsible type so I'll agree with you that she probably didn't know.

    Why not me?!

    After I killed them, I would walk over and break numerous bones in their body. I'd play it off like I broke them in a fury of martial art moves, and that it was just reflex.
