As many of you have heard by now, a 26-year-old Officer named Chase Maddox was killed yesterday as authorities tried to serve a warrant.

Maddox was a five year veteran with the Locust Grove Police Department in Henry County.

Maddox rushed to the scene yesterday after the failed warrant attempt. The suspect opened fire on three officers, killing Maddox and injuring the other two officers.

According to WSB-TV, Maddox and his wife have one child together and his wife is expecting their other child in the next few days.

It’s truly heartbreaking to hear that Maddox died before getting to meet his second child.

Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers today.
