Soon after arriving, the deputies realized that Guthrie had no intention of going with them and they radioed for backup. Locust Grove (LG) officer Chase Maddox was nearby and responded. He was on the scene within a couple of minutes. At some point while the 3 LEO were in the house with Mr. Guthrie, Guthrie has access to a gun and opened fire. Both deputies were hit. One in the torso, who was likely saved by his vest. The other was hit a couple of inches below his vest in the stomach and was transported to Atlanta Medical. The LG officer, Chase Maddox, was hit in the head and died on the scene. At least one of the officers was able to return fire, hitting and killing Guthrie. Officer Maddox was 26 and had been with the LG PD for 5 years. He leaves behind a wife and young son. His wife, who is pregnant, was scheduled to have C-section delivery of their 2nd child on Tuesday. Prayers for her and their 2 children. I work very close to this scene. The children of some coworkers attend the school that was locked down. I did not know the officer who was killed, but one coworker is close to their family. I've known one of the deputies involved for many years. All of this over a Failure to Appear Warrant for a traffic citation. I have not heard if they have found any other reason for the suspect to react this way. As they sift through the house & his life, they may uncover other reasons he was determined not to be taken into custody. Officer Maddox was the first LG PD officer killed in the line of duty in the city's 124 year existence.
