One officer dead, two others shot while serving warrant near Atlanta

Three law enforcement officers were injured and a suspect was dead after a shooting in Georgia on Friday, WSB-TV reported, citing local sheriff's officials.

Locust Grove Mayor Robert Price identified the slain officer as 26-year-old Chase Maddox, who had been with the department since he was 22.

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

"They notified radio and a Locust Grove city police officer came to be a backup for them", McBrayer said during a news briefing. A Locust Grove officer then arrived on the scene to assist.

One of the two Georgia deputies wounded in a shooting outside Atlanta has been released from the hospital and another was in stable condition after surgery.

Sheriff McBrayer said his deputies went to the home to serve an arrest warrant late Friday morning.

"The Locust Grove police officer died shortly after at the hospital".
