The GBI said agents recovered two guns and an unspecified amount of drugs after the bust.
According to the sheriff’s office, Osborne’s jail records showed that he had been arrested multiple times within Gordon County, and at the time of his death he was out of jail on a $20,000 bond for an aggravated assault charge.
The deputies involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave. The GBI has been asked to conduct a separate investigation.
It marks the 73rd officer-involved shooting the GBI has investigated this year.
