'A good young man' | Locust Grove police officer shot and killed identified

- One Locust Grove police officer was killed and two Henry County deputies were shot Friday morning while they were serving a warrant in Locust Grove.

Locust Grove Mayor Robert Price told Channel 2 Action News that 26-year-old Chase Maddox starting working at the department when he was 22 years old.

The wounded Henry County Sheriff's deputies were taken to Atlanta Medical Center, where one was in serious condition and undergoing surgery, Sheriff Keith McBrayer told reporters at a press conference.

"Police officers don't get paid enough for what they have to do", Wade Corley said.

While attempting to arrest the man, an altercation broke out and all four men were shot. Price said Maddox had a young child, and his wife is pregnant and due to give birth to their second child "any day".

The names of the officers along with the suspect have not been released by authorities.

Police blocked off multiple entrances of a subdivision not far from an outlet mall.

"It's quiet. I've never had any issues and I pray I don't have any, said Rodgers, who has lived there almost two years".

McBrayer said the incident began when the two sheriff's deputies went to arrest a criminal suspect in the town of Locust Grove and called for backup when they realized they would have "issues placing him in custody".
