After being asked for her ID, Simpson reached into the glove box, pulled out a gun and fired at Yother’s chest, Miles said. The round hit his bulletproof vest and ricocheted off his cellphone, hitting him in the arm.
He was taken to Hamilton Medical Center in Dalton and is expected to recover, Calhoun police Chief Tony Pyle told Channel 2 Action News.
Thompson and Yother both returned fire, shooting and killing Simpson, Pyle said. The other woman was arrested and taken to the Gordon County Jail.
Miles said that woman faces charges unrelated to the shooting, but the specific charges haven’t been released.
Since Sunday, the GBI has been called to investigate four officer-involved shootings. Those incidents include shootings in Chatham County, Turner County and Bibb County.
The incident in Gordon County is the 88th officer-involved shooting the GBI has been called to investigate this year, Miles said.
