3 officers shot in north Georgia neighborhood

Authorities say one officer has died and two deputies were critically wounded in a shooting that also left a suspect dead south of Atlanta.

He had been with the Locust Grove police for about five years.

Several media reports stated that it happened as the officers were serving an arrest warrant at a home in Locust Grove, about 40 miles (64 kilometers) southeast of Atlanta.

The woman said she couldn't get home Friday afternoon because police had the entire neighborhood blocked off while they investigated the shooting.

The brother of the wounded Deputy Michael Corley, Wade Corley, told Christy Hutchings with the New Talk 106.7 his brother will survive his wounds. The GBI identified the suspect as Tierra Guthrie, 39, on its Twitter page Friday night, but released no other details about him.

Investigators respond to the scene of a shooting in Locust Grove, Ga., on February 9, 2018. He said the officer's wife was expecting their second child "any day now".

Price said Maddox had been with the department since he was 22, just out of school.

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

Sheriff McBrayer said one deputy is in serious condition and the other is in fair condition.

Two of the officers were taken from the scene to a hospital by helicopter, while the third was taken to a hospital by ambulance.
