JONESBORO, Ga. (CBS46) – A gun battle between Clayton County Police and a person of interest in a Henry County murder ended Monday with the suspect dead.

The crime started earlier Monday when Henry County Police arrived at two homicide scenes in Hampton, Georgia that they said appeared to be related. One victim was discovered on the 100 block of Carl Parker Drive and the other was found on the 900 block of Steele Drive.

Robert Bogel said one of the victims was Anne Hall. Bogel said he was the son-in-law of Hall. Police identified Donnie Wayne Hall, 50, of Stockbridge, Georgia as the person of interest in this case.

"Over something that's in his head that doesn't exist because my mother-in-law would never cheat on her husband for one, and my friend would never look at my mother-in-law in that kind of way," said Bogel.

Bogel told CBS46's Brittany Edney Donnie was delusional and thought Anne was having an affair. Bogel also said Anne and Donnie were separated. 

"I knew that it was going to come to this and I kept warning her to go stay with some of her family," said Pastor Diane Chrispen Williams.

The 69-year-old had recently taken out a restraining order against her estranged husband when he became obsessed with the idea she was sleeping with an employee half her age.

"He wrote a letter saying that if you will sign this letter saying that you go with your N-word lover, I will forgive you. She said I'm not going to do that," added Williams. 

Later Monday as Henry County Police searched for Hall, a report came in from Clayton County of shots fired at a Clayton County Police officer near a Quiktrip on Tara Boulevard. Shortly thereafter, Hall was confirmed dead in a subdivision near the area, Clayton County Police said Monday evening.


The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been called in to investigate the scene where Hall died.
