  • 3 law enforcement officers reportedly shot in Georgia

A Locust Grove police officer was killed and two Henry County deputies injured Friday while attempting to serve a criminal warrant, according to investigators. McBrayer wouldn't say who fired first or give other details about how it happened.

"Trying to make an arrest, there was an altercation", he said. He said the officer's wife was expecting their second child "any day now".

"It is a very emotional time for the Henry County community", Miles said. One had served with the force for 20 years.

Both sheriff's deputies were transported to Atlanta Medical Center, where one is in fair condition and the other is in serious condition after being shot in the stomach and is now undergoing surgery. Deputies then notified supervisors and the Locust Grove officer arrived as a backup, he said. The deputy in fair condition was shot in the chest, though the deputy's vest caught the round.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating the incident.




The GBI said it has identified the suspect, but is withholding his name pending notification of his family.

Police blocked off multiple entrances of a subdivision not far from an outlet mall. The man who was supposed to be arrested was also killed in the shootout, police said.

Locust Grove Mayor Robert Price described Maddox as a "smart young man" who had been hired directly out of school.

"Of course when you go to take someone into custody, you never know what kind of response you're going to get", the sheriff said.
