Two deputies standing in the street opened fire on Young, striking and killing him, according to the GBI. The agency conducted its own investigation into the incident.
The children were with Young’s family and were not in the truck at the time of the shooting. They were reunited with their mother later that night.
According to Macon news station WGXA, Young was a teacher and coach at Academy of Classical Education in Macon. He taught social studies at the high school for two years but was not going to return in the fall, a spokeswoman for the school told the news station.
The GBI handed over its findings to the district attorney’s office following its investigation. With no charges against the deputies, Cooke said the case is closed.
