  • 3 law enforcement officers reportedly shot in Georgia

According to Henry County Sheriff Kenneth McBrayer, police were serving a bench warrant on a suspect for failure to appear in Locust Grove municipal court.

Locust Grove Mayor Robert Price described Maddox as a "smart young man" who had been hired directly out of school.

The shooting happened at a park in Locust Grove and the suspected shooter is dead.

The identity of the Locust Grove police officer who was killed on Friday has been identified.

A news conference was scheduled for 2 p.m. local time, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said on Twitter.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation late Friday identified the wounded deputies as Michael D. Corley and Ralph Sidwell "Sid" Callaway. Two deputies also were shot and wounded. GBI spokeswoman Nelly Miles said the suspect's relatives were being notified before his name is released.

4400-year-old tomb discovered in Egypt
Egypt hopes the inauguration of the new museum, along with the recent discoveries, will draw visitors back to the country. The tombs most likely belong to two notable figures from Egypt's 18th dynasty pharaohs, who ruled some 3,500 years ago.


The shooting took place inside a home off St. Francis Court in Locust Grove.

"We just can't believe this happened", he said. At that point they called Locust Grove for backup from an officer.

One of the deputies was shot through his bullet proof vest in the stomach and is undergoing surgery.

Police blocked off multiple entrances of a subdivision not far from an outlet mall and were turning people who don't live in the neighborhood away.

Neighbors told WSB-TV the shots sounded like firecrackers going off.
