Traffic stop leads to officer-involved shooting in Albany; suspect ID’d

A traffic stop in Albany led to an officer-involved shooting early Monday morning, the GBI said.

The shooting took place about 3 a.m. in an alley in the 300 block of Broad Avenue, according to Albany police.

The incident began when an officer attempted to stop a vehicle and several people got out and ran, the GBI said. After a short pursuit, another Albany police officer encountered one of the suspects, identified as 35-year-old Alfred Hadley Jr., and shot him, authorities said.

It’s unclear what led to the shooting or if Hadley had a weapon. 

No officers were injured and Hadley was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, the GBI said Tuesday. He has since been booked into the Dougherty County Jail, where his charges are pending.

A second suspect who fled the vehicle, 30-year-old Major Bell, was arrested near the scene and charged with probation violation for an unrelated incident, the GBI said. 


The officer-involved shooting was the 24th the GBI has investigated in 2020.
