Locust Grove Officer Murdered, Deputies With Him Shot

A Locust Grove officer was fatally shot, and two deputies were wounded, while serving a warrant on Friday morning.

Locust Grove, GA – A police officer was fatally shot, and two others were wounded, while serving a warrant in Locus Grove on Friday morning.

At a press conference on Friday afternoon, Henry County Sheriff Keith McBrayer said that the Locust Grove police officer who was shot had died “at the scene or shortly thereafter,” but refused to give any details as to where the officer was shot, or how many times.

Two Henry County sheriff’s deputies were also shot. One was in serious condition and in surgery at the time of the press conference. The other deputy was in fair condition, according to Sheriff McBrayer.

The suspect was shot by police, and died at the scene.

The sheriff did not release the names of the officers who were shot, but said the Locust Grove officer who was killed had been on the department for about five years.

Both deputies were wearing ballistic vests. He said one of the deputies was a 20-year veteran of the sheriff’s office, and the other was a reserve deputy with prior law enforcement experience.

The deputy who was in surgery received a gunshot wound about two inches below his vest.

The sheriff said that the deputy who was shot directly in the vest was in fair condition.

Wade Corley told WXIA that his brother, Michael Corley, was the deputy who was shot in the vest.

He stopped to give an interview outside Atlanta Medical center, where all three officers were transported after the incident.

“Thank God for the bulletproof vest,” said Wade Corley, a pastor at Mt. Zion United Methodist Church in Griffin. “The bullet went through the vest and caught him near the right side of his ribs.

“Police officers don’t get paid enough for what they have to do,” Wade Corley said.

Sheriff McBrayer said that the incident began at 10:53 a.m. when two Henry County deputies arrived at the home on St. Francis Court to serve a warrant for failure to appear in court.

He said the warrant had been issued by the Locust Grove municipal court, but did not know the nature of the offense behind the missed court appearance.

The sheriff said that the deputies radioed for backup soon after their arrival at the home, and that a Locust Grove officer who was murdered arrived in about three minutes.

“Of course, you never know when you take somebody into custody what kind of response you’re going to get but our information is that it was obvious the individual was not going to go – that’s the reason they called for a locust grove officer to give them some assistance – because they knew he was not going to be willing to go with them,” Sheriff McBrayer said.

He said there was an altercation when the officers went to take the suspect into custody, and that’s when the three officers were shot.

“The individual they were there to arrest is deceased, and was shot during the encounter,” Sheriff McBrayer said.

The sheriff said the shootings all took place inside the residence. There were other people present but nobody else was wounded.

Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI) spokesperson Nellie Miles said authorities had identified the suspect, but were not releasing his name or what kind of weapon he used to shoot the officers.

GBI was leading the investigation with assistance from the Henry County Sheriff’s Office, Henry County Police, and the Locust Grove Police.

ENOUGH!! Is ENOUGH!!!
This open warefare on the American cop has to be stopped dead.
This all is from left wing Anti- American, Anti Law and Order, Anti-Values.
And democrats who preach to the liberal masses to revolt against the Police. It has to stop.
Politicians rhetoric is costing police officers to be killed. Just look at past few weeks. They are killing cops like the national past time, and dont tell me its mental illness. Thats bull-shit!!

Anyone who feels they have a right to kill a police officer should get death penalty with no waiting time..hell no jury. You shoot at a cop then you should be taken down with deadly force. So sick of this. There's NO excuse

@bronx163 lol, you can't go around blaming everything on the opposite party. If they were as influential and as powerful as you think they are, they would hold all 3 branches of government.

Its the left that calls for killing cops. Left calls for dismantling the police.
Its the left that wants hands off policing.its the left that defends murdering daca gang members.
Its the left that shuts sown the government to defend illegal alliens and illegal allien gang members. Its the left that obstructs federal agents deom enforcing immigration law.
Americans come before illegal allien non citizens.

Seems like a home owner was defending himself from a perceived home invasion & exercising his 2A Rights. Why would a home owner be so aggressive towards the police if he did not believe his life was in danger?

@bronx163 your whole statement is wrong.

How are you blaming Democrats for shutdown when Republicans run the White House, the House, and the Senate?

@bronx163 none of the random items you named are in charge.

What is your excuse/reasoning for nothing getting done, even with one party controlling the law-making arm of the government?

Explain how Democrats are responsible for the shutdown with a republican-led house, senate, and white house.

@bronx163 possibly. But you have no answer for a Republican-run government that was responsible for a shutdown.

I agree what Ran Paul did.
Beside emergency aid for the storms that hit. Its full of bs domestic welfare wasteful spending.
Obama left office with 19 trillion in debt and accomplished nothing but taxing my healthcare and
Doubling the amount of blacka on welfare and chicago in tathers.

First of all, I'd like to thank whichever one of you donut-munching, barrel-assed, pud-pulling sissies leaked this to the press. That's just what we need now: some sensational story in the papers making these boys out to be superheroes, triumphing over evil. Let me squash the rumors now. These two are not heroes. They're just two ordinary men who were put in an extraordinary situation and they just happened to come out on top. Yes, nothing from our far-reaching computer system has turned up diddly on these two. All we know is what we found out from the neighbors, and the general consensus is, they're angels. But angels don't kill. And we got two bodies in the morgue that look like they've been "serial-crushed by some huge friggin' guy"

@Hi_estCumminsDiesel Democrats can want everything in the world. But explain, dummy, how a republican-led Congress and White House led to 2 government shut downs?

Follow me, here. If you took the Democrats out of the equation, the Republicans would still not have their shit together enough to pass much. Explain, please.

@SandyMalone who would I speak to about an attempted doxxing? Earlier, @Hi_estCumminsDiesel posted a link on this website designed to record people's IP addresses. He has deleted the post, but here is a picture of the attempt.

Hightest_Retard, stop whining, bitch. I can't believe you are a web developer. You can't even navigate the simplest web page and you have been whining under multiple articles. Go to "contact us" and send a fricking email. They respond in a timely manner. Maybe your girlfriend can do it for you.

@lds719 haha I'm sorry, I thought LDS stood for Latter-Day Saints. I thought you were an extra-looney Mormon, and not a regular looney Christian.

No we don't. You have no idea what I believe. You make an incorrect statement. You are told you are wrong. Instead of admitting you were wrong and moving on, you always make it about yourself. Your Narcissistic Personality Disorder is showing again. But keep fighting. There is no cure for what you have, but you can learn to control it.
