3 killed, 2 officers hurt in Georgia standoff

Georgia officers try to avoid gunfire in body-cam footage leading up to fatal 15-hour standoff

Police confirmed to a WSB reporter that the alleged gunman killed himself.

Authorities say both officers were in serious condition at an Atlanta hospital after being wounded by gunfire in Stockbridge, just south of Atlanta.

Police were called to a home in the neighborhood about 20 miles south of Atlanta at around 10.45am on Thursday on a "trouble unknown" call. Two Henry County officers were shot. "Hopefully he'll do as he said and release the [boy]". The sister of the pregnant woman told WSB she had found her dead and called police, triggering the standoff. Employees at the dentist's office had called police about a man who had been acting erratically and Smith was shot as he confronted the man. The gunman and the teen are related, cops said. Authorities made a decision to fire several gas canisters into the home, at which point the suspect fired back at SWAT officers outside the home.

"I think the less injured officer was able to aid the other and get him out of the house", Smith said.

The standoff has ended with the deaths of several people, Henry County Police said.

Police say a gunman suspected of fatally shooting a civilian and also striking two Georgia police officers is holed up in a house with a teenager who is considered a hostage. After an hours-long standoff, a combined-agency SWAT Team breached the home and discovered three bodies.Early indications show all died from gunshot wound.

They are expected to be OK, but the situation devolved as the unidentified suspect allegedly held a teen hostage inside the Henry County home. "With communication with the individual, at least he's talking - that's helpful".

Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr thanked police officers for their service, saying on Twitter, "Our thoughts and prayers are with the Henry County Police officers who were shot today while putting their lives on the line to keep our communities safe".
