ROME, Ga. (CBS46) – Authorities are investigating an officer-involved shooting in Floyd County.

On Sunday, the Rome Police Department said the Georgia Bureau of Investigation was called in to investigate the incident which happened in the 400 block of Chulio Road SE around 2 p.m.

Police were in the area to arrest gang fugitive Jeffery Tyler Aycock, 28, for violating his probation, as well as aggravated assault of an officer. Officers previously attempted to arrest Aycock on September 18, but were unsuccessful due to the suspect firing a weapon multiple times at officers.

Three days later, on September 22, SWAT arrived at the area and began clearing the wooded surroundings and an abandoned house on the property, while doing so, contact was made with Aycock.

The suspect then grabbed a weapon from behind his back. He was fatally shot when he failed to comply with commands to drop the weapon.

According to Georgia State Patrol, the Marshal’s Service and Rome-Floyd SWAT were tracking Aycock, who allegedly shot at officers last week while they were serving a warrant.

No officers were injured.
