Default Locust Grove, GA WM officer, 26 backing up Henry County deputies shot to death by negro now dead


Locust Grove officer backing up Henry County deputies murdered

Updated: Feb 10 2018 08:16AM EST

HENRY COUNTY, Ga. - It was a heartbreaking day in Locust Grove on Friday, as the first officer in the city’s 124-year history was killed in the line of duty while helping Henry County deputies serve an arrest warrant.

Officer Chase Maddox, a nearly 5-year veteran of the force, had met up with two Henry County Deputies Michael D. Corley and Ralph Sidwell “Sid” Callaway at a home on St. Francis Court after receiving a call for backup. The deputies were trying to serve a warrant for failure to appear on an individual.

The officer and two deputies were inside the home when investigators said an altercation broke out.

The sheriff said Officer Maddox was struck in the head; the deputies were hit on their bodies.

Meanwhile, the man the three law enforcement officers were trying to take into custody was identified by the GBI as 39-year-old Tierra Guthrie, who was wanted for failure to appear in court regarding traffic violations. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Only very few details were released about Guthrie on Friday and it still is not known why he resisted.

First look at man involved in deadly shootout with police who were serving a warrant for his arrest in Locust Grove. The warrant on 39-year-old Tierre Guthrie was for failing to appear in court, Wednesday, for a parking ticket. He has no prior offenses in Locust Grove, according to online records. His Facebook page contains extremist imagery, and in the past, he has shared videos of news reports to his timeline that contain alleged instances of excessive force by police.
