Georgia officer killed while trying to serve arrest warrant

According to Mayor Robert Price, Chase Maddox, 26, was a five-year veteran of the Locust Grove police department after serving in the National Guard.

A Locust Grove police officer was killed and two Henry County sheriff's deputies were wounded Friday after a man opened fire while being served with a warrant, multiple news outlets reported.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Henry County deputies Michael Corley and Ralph Sidwell "Sid" Callaway were serving a warrant because the suspect failed to appear in court.

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

Tanger Outlet is located on I-75 at Locust Grove Road.

"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.

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

Both of the deputies are at Atlanta Medical Center. The second deputy was listed in fair condition.

Locust Grove is about 40 miles southeast of Atlanta.

"Thank God for the bulletproof vest", said Wade Corley, a pastor at Mt. Zion United Methodist Church in Griffin.

He said officers had no motivation to accept when they arrived that the suspect would be savage, however it ended up noticeably clear that he wouldn't run with them readily.
