Authorities identified Jones, 38, as an off-duty U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer who was at the Walmart with his wife and three children.
It remains unclear what led to the fatal encounter but police said the altercation was captured by Walmart’s surveillance cameras.
ICE spokesman Bryan Cox said Jones, who works in the agency’s Enforcement and Removal Operations division, shot Liddell with a 9mm Glock he personally owned. Douglasville police and ICE’s Office of Professional Responsibility are investigating.
