Police Officers Shot in N. Georgia

Police Officers Shot in N. Georgia

A Georgia mayor says a police officer who was killed in a shooting that wounded two sheriff's deputies had a young child and a baby on the way.

"It became apparent that the suspect was not going to go with police, which is why a Locust Grove officer was called in to assist", McBrayer said.

McBrayer said the two deputies had responded to the home around 10:53 a.m.to serve a warrant on charges out of the Locust Grove municipal court for failure to appear.

Sheriff Keith McBrayer told the newspaper that one deputy was in critical condition and the other was stable Friday afternoon.

He said gunfire erupted as they were trying to take a male suspect into custody. He did not specify who shot whom, but the suspect also died and police weren't searching for any shooters.
