Contributions continued to pour in Monday afternoon for the family of a Georgia police officer killed in the line of duty.
Locust Grove Officer Chase Lee Maddox, 26, died Friday while assisting Henry County deputies serving an arrest warrant, according to police. Gun fire broke out and at least nine shots were fired. Maddox died after being shot in the head, the GBI said. Tierre Guthrie, who lived in the St. Francis Court home, was also shot to death.
A Maddox family friend created a Go Fund Me page to benefit the officer’s pregnant wife and young son. Donations topped $100,000 by Monday afternoon. The original goal was $20,000. Donations were also being accepted at United Community Bank branches.
