Georgia police officer shot multiple times in Valdosta

Georgia police officer shot multiple times in Valdosta

A police officer was shot while responding to a damage to property call at an apartment complex in Valdosta, GA, Friday morning, reports WXIA.

In an afternoon press conference, Valdosta Police Chief Brian Childress identified the officer as Randal Hancock. He was reportedly shot several times.

"Upon arrival, VPD officer encountered a male in the parking lot. Gun shots were exchanged," according to a statement from police.

WALB-TV reports the officer was under fire immediately after arriving on the scene. The officer also shot the suspect, who has not been identified. Both were taken to the hospital.

Suddenly it's open season on Police Officers.

Sad to say it, but I don't think the shootings done yet .It's going to be a long hot summer..

The LEO that was shot here today was simply walking back to his car after a traffic stop when the guy shot him once in the neck...

There is a big BLM street march in Atlanta tonight.
Hope it's peaceful and progressively quiet.

Happily, the officer survived.

Sadly, the POS that lured him in so he could shoot the office is still alive.

I noticed the news did not go into full detail on this one tonight....I think it is time to put two officers in a car.

The police chief in the Lou said tonight on the news that as of now two officers will be in a squad car at a time..

Here's the story about the Ballwin Police Department officer that was shot today..

He was lucky that the guy didn't have something bigger than a .22. Just read the story...I know that the police in that area have to be on edge.

I fear that's the scene that we will see here come August 9th which is the second anniversary of Michael Brown's death...

BLM won't let an opportunity like this go by without a protest..
