Columbus Police Chief Ricky Boren has confirmed another officer-involved shooting, this one at the intersection of Holly Avenue and 41st Street early Friday.
The suspect has a non life-threatening injury, Boren said, and has been transported to Midtown Medical Center in Columbus.
Maj. Gil Slouchick confirmed that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating, which is standard procedure. No further details were immediately released.
It is the second officer-involved shooting in two days and the third since Labor Day.
Authorities said 52-year-old James Fuller was wanted in Texas on methamphetamine charges when he was shot and killed Sept. 4 during a scuffle with police on the scene of a domestic violence call in Oakland Park. Boren said the officers were trying to take him into custody at the time, and Fuller reached for what appeared to have been a gun before the scuffle.
Officials said they were responding to a shots fired call at the intersection of Luna Drive and Mill Branch when an officer shot 28-year-old Lindsey Donaldson in the leg around 8:30 a.m. Monday. His injuries weren’t life threatening.
Officials said Donaldson aimed a gun at police before the shooting, and he ignored demands to drop the weapon. He was charged with two counts of aggravated assault.
