"They talked with the individual and after about 10 minutes of talking with him realized they were going to be making an arrest, and they were going to have issues placing him in custody", McBrayer said.

The sheriff said the Locust Grove police officer had just arrived on the scene as backup when the shooting took place.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been notified and is en route to the scene.

The GBI said it has identified the suspect, but is withholding his name pending notification of his family.

Police blocked off multiple entrances of a subdivision not far from an outlet mall and were turning people who don't live in the neighborhood away.
