One person killed in SCSO officer involved shooting

SHEILA A. MATHEWS :::

One person was shot and killed late Wednesday night, July 4, in an officer involved shooting.

The incident occurred on Bonnie Ridge Drive and involved personnel of the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office.

The GRIP contacted SCSO Capt. Dwayne Jones, who initially reported the Sheriff’s Office had requested the Georgia Bureau of Investigation respond to the scene.

“The scene is secure and the GBI is en route,” Jones said.

The Sheriff’s Office later released a statement confirming one person had been killed.

“Spalding County deputies and the GBI are on the scene of an officer involved shooting on Bonnie Ridge Drive,” the statement confirmed.

Officials say a suspect fired on deputies, and the suspect was struck by return fire and killed.

“No deputies were injured in the exchange of gunfire,” the Sheriff’s Office statement reported.

The GRIP will continue to follow this developing situation and report additional information as it becomes available.
