VIDEO: Georgia Officer Killed Serving No-Knock Warrant

Major Greg Barney was shot and killed while assisting Clayton County, GA, police serving a no-knock drug warrant at an apartment complex right across the street from the Riverdale (GA) Police Department where he worked, reports WXIA.

The suspect police were looking for ran out the back door and Barney chased him. Police said the suspect turned around and shot Barney once in the stomach and once in the leg. Barney was not wearing a vest.

Fellow officers and the community now reminisce about how much they'll miss the 25-year veteran of the Riverdale PD. "As tough as the job can be every day there would be a smile on his face for some reason or another," Chief Spivey said.

Barney worked as a school resource officer at Riverdale High School. He also served as sergeant, captain, and major, as well as interim police chief.

He leaves behind a wife, Lisa, and two 15-year-old sons, Robert and Greg.

The suspect, 24-year-old Jerand Ross, was shot in the head by another officer and is being treated at Atlanta Medical Center for his injuries, reports WXIA.

Ross will be charged with murder, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. No knock warrants should be banned as a police tactic. It exposes both citizen and officer to too much danger.

Nice to see Leonard weighing in again on something he clearly knows nothing about.
