Suspect dies, 2 officers wounded in shooting

BYRON, Ga. (AP) – Authorities say the suspect in a shooting in which two Georgia officers were shot while serving a warrant at a home has died.

Georgia Bureau of Investigation Special Agent J.T. Ricketson told The Telegraph of Macon that the suspect, a man, was shot multiple times and died in the home Monday morning.

Ricketson also said one of the Byron officers who was shot was treated and released at a hospital. He says the other officer was more seriously wounded and had to undergo surgery. They were shot while serving a search warrant in Crawford County.

Ricketson says the officers went inside the house and an occupant started shooting at them. The officers returned fire. The condition of the suspect hasn’t been released.
