Two officers were injured in a16 hour standoff in Georgia. The gunman killed the two hostages before turning the gun on himself.
Fox24 Reports that Henry County Police Department has released body cam video of officers entering a home and getting into a shootout with the gunman who later killed himself, as well as a mother and her teen son.
Two Henry County officers were shot, but are recovering in the hospital.
The two officers were responding to a domestic disturbance Thursday morning when they came under fire by the gunman, who then barricaded himself inside the house. A standoff ensued for the next 15 hours as police pleaded with the gunman to release the teenage boy from the home in Stockbridge, south of Atlanta.
Dramatic video from police body cameras shows a chaotic scene, as officers are ambushed almost immediately after they break down the door of the home.
“I got a hostage!,” the gunman yells at one point, his voice captured in a body camera that was dropped inside the home. He warns the officers not to come near him — and that he has plenty of ammunition.
The video also shows one of the officers being wounded and dragging his rifle across the front lawn to safety.
Police were initially hopeful…
