A Georgia sheriff's deputy was injured Tuesday night at a domestic disturbance and possible kidnapping call when the suspect reportedly plowed his truck into the patrol vehicles at the scene. Deputies opened fire during the attack and the suspect was killed.

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office reports on Facebook that the incident happened just before 6 p.m. The agency wrote:

"When deputies arrived on the scene they met with the victim who stated she and her husband were going through a divorce, and that her husband tied her up and took their three children. She was able to get free and ran to a nearby neighbor for help. While deputies were taking the report of the incident, the husband 30-year-old Keith Young, returned back to the neighborhood and noticed deputies speaking with his wife.

"Young began speeding down the road towards the deputies and struck three patrol units and a parked vehicle. Deputies fired shots at Young, striking him. Young was transported to the Navicent hospital where he later died.

"During this incident one deputy was still inside of the patrol vehicle and was injured. The injuries are non-life threatening."

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating the case.
