VIDEO: GA Officer Stabbed, Suspect Shot

A Walker County, GA, deputy was stabbed investigating a suspicious person complaint, which led to an officer-involved shooting Monday, reports WRCB.

Around 4:45 p.m. dispatch got a suspicious person call from a resident on Caldonia Street. Sheriff Steve Wilson says Walker County Deputy JD Holland responded to the call and spotted the suspicious person, James A. Johnson. When Holland arrived, Johnson ran before he could be questioned. But Holland was able to catch Johnson a street over on Rosa Street.

Sheriff Wilson says while Johnson was being handcuffed, he pulled out a hunting knife and stabbed deputy Holland three times; twice in the leg and once in the arm. He says Holland was able to reach his service gun and shot Johnson twice; once in the leg and once in the abdomen. Johnson was in stable condition. 

Sheriff Wilson says Holland’s injuries are non-life threatening and he is expected to make a full recovery.
