A 15-hour standoff in Henry County left three people dead including the gunman in Eagle Court in Stockbridge. The victims include a pregnant woman, her 16-year old son and the gunman who killed himself. The gunman has also been reported as a suspect of the murder of two Henry County officers yesterday morning. He fled to the home in Stockbridge holding the family hostage overnight.
“We’re hoping he was going release the 16-year-old. He said he would, and we’re just standing by waiting,” Henry County police Capt. Joey Smith said. “We do not want to make a dynamic entry into the home,” Smith continued, “With communication with the individual, at least he’s talking — that’s helpful. We’re going to wait as long as we can.”
Both officers are currently at Grady Memorial Hospital and are expected to survive with “non-life-threatening.”
