A Dallas, Ga., man has died of a single gunshot wound to the chest after a confrontation with Paulding County police Monday.
Douglas Scott Pilcher, 47, reportedly was armed with several weapons inside his home, threatened suicide and fired several shots at authorities before a Paulding County officer fired a shot back and wounded him.
Pilcher was transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital, according to Cpl. Brandon Gurley with the Paulding County Sheriff's Office. He was pronounced dead there.
The incident happened shortly after 2 p.m. at a home on Sugar Maple Lane in the Seven Hills subdivision near Dallas. Piltcher was the only one at the home at the time of the incident, Gurley said.
This May, more than 7,500 service and working animals will receive free sight-saving eye exams in the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico. The annual ACVO/StokesRx National Service Animal Eye Exam event was created as a national platform to address eye health, which is critical for the safety of the animals and their handlers.
