The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said in a statement that preliminary results of an autopsy performed Saturday on Locust Grove Police Officer Chase Maddox at the crime lab in Decatur indicate he was shot three times, with the fatal wound being to the head.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said deputies showed up to the home in a Locust Grove subdivision to arrest the suspect for failing to make a court appearance, but investigators said the suspect wouldn't cooperate.

The two deputies from Henry Counties were veterans.

"They talked with the individual and after about 10 minutes of talking with him realized they were going to be making an arrest and they were going to have issues placing him in custody", the sheriff said.

The sheriff said there had been no reason to think that the suspect would be violent, but while trying to make the arrest an altercation broke out. The fallen officer's wife is expecting the couple's second baby.

Of the two deputies who were injured, one was in serious condition and was undergoing surgery for an abdominal injury, while the other was in fair condition and had been released from the hospital.

The GBI said it has identified the suspect, but is withholding his name pending notification of his family. The officer from Locust Grove, who died, had been with the force for five years. The job with the police department was his first in law enforcement, according to Price.

On Wednesday, David Sherrard of the Richardson, Texas, police was killed while responding to a shots fired call at an apartment complex.

On Monday, Micah Flick of the sheriff's office in El Paso County, Colorado, was killed while investigating a vehicle theft.

The shooting took place inside a residence, said a local sheriff during a news conference Friday afternoon. The suspect was killed.
