3 law enforcement officers reportedly shot in Georgia

Police Officer Killed Two Others Shot

A police officer was shot dead and two sheriff's deputies were wounded on Friday in a small Georgia town by a gunman who was then killed, the county sheriff said.

The officer was with the Locust Grove Police Department while the deputies were with the Henry County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators interact with people following a shooting in Locust Grove, Ga., on February 9, 2018.

The names of the officers, along with that of the suspect, have not been released. He is in serious condition.

The neighbor told Fernandes that she thought the gunshots were firecrackers until she saw all the first responders descend on Saint Francis Court.

Price said Maddox and his wife were the parents of one child and were expecting another. "It's just surprising to think that something would happen here", the neighbor said.




"It all happened inside the residence", the sheriff said at an afternoon news conference.

He said they had no reason to believe when they arrived that the suspect would be violent.

One of the deputies was shot through his bullet proof vest in the stomach and is undergoing surgery, McBrayer said.

As a precaution, Locust Grove Elementary School said it was on lockdown, News4Jax reported. Two have been flown to a local hospital and one was taken by ambulance.

Neighbors told WSB-TV the shots sounded like firecrackers going off.
