Paulding Deputies were involved in a Deputy involved shooting earlier this morning (11/20/22) at 9:54 AM. The shooting stemmed from a traffic stop that took place at the intersection of Macland Road and Bobo Road.
When Deputies performed a traffic stop on the suspect vehicle, gunfire erupted between the suspect and Deputies.
The suspect then fled the scene and a vehicle pursuit ensued. The pursuit ended at West Memorial Drive adjacent to Bolton Furniture within the city limits of Dallas. An additional exchange of gunfire occurred, and the suspect was eventually taken into custody. The suspect was then transported to a local hospital where he died as a result of his injuries.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been contacted and are on the scene in order to investigate the Deputy involved shooting.
