Authorities say a Jackson County Sheriff’s Deputy died from a gunshot wound she received when responding to a domestic dispute. WAGA-TV reported the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office identified the deputy as Lena Nicole Marshall.
In a separate incident, an officer with the Henry County Police Department also died from injuries he received in a shooting after responding to a domestic call. The police department made the announcement late Monday night on their Facebook page.
Officials say Marshall was shot Friday night after responding to a 911 call from a home about a domestic situation. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said the homeowners sought to remove a woman from their home who didn’t live there.
Investigators said when deputies arrived, the woman pulled out a gun, fired at the deputies and struck Marshall. The sheriff’s office says the second deputy returned fire and killed the woman, Jessica Worsham.
Deputy Marshall was a K-9 officer.
