Clayton County officer involved in shooting

Posted: Updated:
CLAYTON COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

A Clayton County police officer was forced to shoot a suspect while serving a search warrant Friday afternoon.

The shooting happened at a home in the 7800 block of Fielder Road near Stockbridge Road.

SWAT officers were called to the scene because the situation was a high-risk search warrant and the suspect resisted being arrested, according to police at the scene.

That suspect received non-life threatening injuries in the shooting.

On Friday evening, investigators with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation were processing the home, which is standard procedure after an officer-involved shooting.

The name of the officer was not released. 

CBS Atlanta has a crew at the scene and CBSAtlanta.com will have more information as it becomes available.
