February 10, 2018: A police officer was killed and two deputies were seriously wounded in a shooting that also left a suspect dead south of Atlanta, authorities said Friday.


Henry County Sheriff McBrayer said it happened as the officers were serving an arrest warrant around 11 a.m.at a home in Locust Grove, about 40 miles southeast Atlanta.

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

He said gunfire erupted as the deputies were trying to take a male suspect into custody on a warrant from the municipal court in Locust Grove. McBrayer wouldn't say who fired first or give other details about how it happened.

"They talked with the individual and after about 10 minutes of talking with him realized they were going to be making an arrest, and they were going to have issues placing him in custody," McBrayer said. At that point they called Locust Grove for backup from an officer.

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

"Trying to make an arrest, there was an altercation," he said.

The two Henry County deputies were veterans, McBrayer said. One had served with the force for 20 years. He said the Locust Grove officer who was killed had been on the force for about five years.
