The officer got into his patrol car and pursued Holmes, calling for backup along the way, the GBI said. About a quarter-mile from the initial location, Holmes crashed into a ditch, officials said.
The officer removed Holmes from the car, placed him under arrest and began performing first aid until emergency medical personnel arrived, the release said.
Two handguns were recovered from the car Holmes was driving, the GBI said.
This is the 105th police shooting the GBI has investigated this year. It was also the second major incident involving law enforcement to happen Monday in Clayton.
After a SWAT standoff that lasted nearly 20 hours, a man wanted out of Louisiana who was described as “armed and dangerous” briefly broke the police perimeter encircling his home before being arrested around midday, police said. Jeremiah Rose, 41, triggered a short shelter-in-place order before he was taken into custody.
