“While the deputies were approaching the backside of the house, a gentlemen stepped out with a handgun and pointed a handgun at the deputy. One of the deputies fired his weapon and struck the subject twice,” Dix told [__11Alive__](http://www.11alive.com/news/crime/officer-involved-shooting-reported-in-spalding-county-gbi-called-in/479224354).

“The distance between the officer and the suspect was very close. There was really not a lot of time for the officer to react.”

Scott, who worked at the county jail between 1991 and 2000 as a jailer, was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to a statement by Sheriff Dix, Head did not identify himself as a law enforcement officer prior to firing two rounds into Scott, because he didn’t have time after Scott aimed his gun at him.

According to records, Head began his career with the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office as a detention officer in April 2014 and before becoming a deputy completed one hour of training in dealing with people who are mentally ill or who have diminished mental capacities.

Dix said Head had also gone through crisis intervention training.

“He is well-versed in de-escalation,” Dix said.

“[But] the instance happened so fast there was not even a chance to say anything.”

Head is now on paid administrative leave.

According to Dix, after being “shaken” by the incident, the sheriff’s office is in the process of getting the deputy counseling.

Several others were in the home at the time of the incident.

They were not harmed.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
