One of the Henry County deputies had been released from the Atlanta hospital by Friday afternoon, according to Atlanta's WSB-TV, but McBrayer said the other underwent surgery on Friday afternoon.

The agency said Locust Grove police Officer Chase Maddox was killed in the Friday shooting.

Sheriff McBrayer said his deputies went to the home to serve an arrest warrant late Friday morning.

'He was a good young man who did a good job, ' Locust Grove Mayor Robert Price said.

He resisted and they called for backup.

Sheriff's Deputies Michael Corley (left) Ralph Sidwell Callaway (right) were both injured and taken to hospital.

Sources tell FOX 5's Morse Diggs the warrant was for a failure-to-appear on a traffic citation.

Reports say the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Henry County Sheriff's Office (HCSO), Henry County Police, Locust Grove Police, and an agent from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are now investigating.

He and his wife Alex have one son and she is pregnant with their second child.

The GBI said it has identified the suspect, but is withholding his name pending notification of his family.

"It is a very emotional time for the Henry County community", Miles said.

Police blocked off multiple entrances of a subdivision not far from an outlet mall and were turning people who don't live in the neighborhood away.

Yellow police tape cordoned off an area of one home's front yard. Locust Grove Elementary School was put on lockdown.
