Georgia officer killed while trying to serve arrest warrant

- A Locust Grove police officer was shot to death and two Henry County Deputies were wounded in a shooting inside a Henry County home late Friday morning. He did not specify who shot whom, but the suspect also died and police weren't searching for any shooters.

The death was the first of the year for Georgia officers in the line of duty. He was a five-year veteran of the department.

Sheriff McBrayer said one deputy is in serious condition and the other is in fair condition. Both were being treated at local hospitals.

The suspect was shot and killed by police on the scene, which was inside a home on St. Francis Court near the Tanger Outlet.

Henry County Sheriff Keith McBrayer announced the death at an afternoon news conference.

There were other people in the residence at the time of the shooting, the sheriff added, but none of them were injured.

The GBI said it has identified the suspect, but is withholding his name pending notification of his family. "The bullet went through the vest and caught him near the right side of his ribs".

Price said Maddox is the only officer they're ever hired straight out of school.

Wade Corley said he got a call saying brother been shot.

While attempting to arrest the man, an altercation broke out and all four men were shot.
