Police officer shot dead, two deputies wounded serving warrant in Georgia

At least three Georgia officers were shot in Locust Grove in Henry County on Friday morning, WSB-TV reported.

Reports say the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Henry County Sheriff's Office (HCSO), Henry County Police, Locust Grove Police, and an agent from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are now investigating.

The Locust Grove Police Department did not provide immediate details on the shooting, and Henry County sheriff's officials could not be reached.

The shooter was killed in the incident, which happened around 10:30 a.m. while deputies were serving a warrant, WSB-TV reported.

"Police officers don't get paid enough for what they have to do", Wade Corley said. When he wouldn't cooperate, they called the Locust Grove officer for backup, McBrayer said.

The shooting took place inside a home off St. Francis Court in Locust Grove.

Price said Maddox and his wife were the parents of one child and were expecting another.

Of the two deputies who were injured, one was in serious condition and was undergoing surgery for an abdominal injury, while the other was in fair condition and had been released from the hospital.

"We just can't believe this happened", he said.

The Locust Grove officer died at the scene from a gunshot wound.

Police blocked off multiple entrances of a subdivision not far from an outlet mall.
