Henry County Sheriff Keith McBrayer said it occurred as the officers were serving a capture warrant around 11 a.m.at a home in Locust Grove, around 40 miles (64 kilometers) southeast of Atlanta.

But while trying to serve the warrant, an altercation broke out, according to the sheriff, and all three officers were shot.
