(UPDATED) Officer-Involved Shooting In Whitesburg This Morning.

According to Brad Robinson, Chief Deputy CCSO:
“The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office had been in contact with Carroll County DFACS Thursday and this morning, looking for a juvenile, who Fayette County had a pick-up order on—and he was accompanied by his father. At some point this morning, some workers had led Whitesburg Police down to a residence off Aycock Street in Whitesburg, where they located the juvenile and his father. At some point, the father went back inside the residence and fired a shotgun. It did not strike the officer. However, the officer did return fire and it struck the juvenile’s father in the leg.”
The juvenile is in custody of Carroll County DFACS.
The shooting victim was life-flighted to an Atlanta hospital.
The Officer is uninjured.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is reviewing the incident.
