HAMPTON, Ga. -- A Henry County Police officer was involved in a shooting Thursday afternoon which left a woman with a gunshot wound.
It happened at about 4:30 p.m., when officers were summoned to an address on Cobb Court after several 911 hang-ups.
Henry County Police Lieutenant Joey Smith said that at the address, officers made a forced entry and were confronted by an armed woman who would not show her hands. The officers tried to talk with the woman, but when she made what police called an offensive move, the officers fired at her. She was struck by the gunfire.
Smith said the woman was taken to Piedmont Henry Hospital in unknown condition.
