VIDEO: 2 Georgia Deputies Shot in Confrontation with Suicidal Man, 1 Deputy Dead

Two Monroe County deputies were shot in the line of duty Saturday while responding to a call on Haley Lane in Bolingbroke, reports WSB-TV.

According to authorities, Deputy Jeff Wilson and Deputy Michael Norris were dispatched at 5:45 p.m. to a home in the 100 block of Haley Lane in response to a man attempting suicide.

The deputies were told that the subject was in possession of a gun. When Norris and Wilson arrived on the scene, they exchanged gunfire with the suspect. Both deputies were shot by the suspect and transported to the Medical Center of Central Georgia for treatment.

A county official said Norris was shot in the head and Wilson was shot in the leg and stomach.

Norris has been declared brain dead and will be taken off life support after donating his organs, the coroner said.

Where is the outcry? Oh wait, they did say anything about the suicidal person getting shot so nobody cares.

Rest in Peace to Deputy Norris and I pray for a complete and speedy recovery for Deputy Wilson.
