None of the deputies — Kevin Lyle, Nathan Manley and Michael Atkins — were injured during the incident, Booth said. They were placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the GBI investigation.
Thursday’s incident comes two days after another deputy-involved shooting. An “erratic” 26-year-old man was shot and killed by a Walton County sheriff’s deputy and a family member was also hit during a reported family disturbance, according to the GBI.
