HARRIS COUNTY, GA.  A state-wide manhunt was underway over the weekend, after 3 black individuals fled the scene of a crime after shooting a sheriff’s deputy in the face after a routine traffic stop. The 3 individuals were driving southbound on I-85 when they were stopped by Deputy Jamie White for speeding around 7 p.m. on Saturday.

After pulling over the 1994 blue Chevrolet Caprice, Deputy White had taken Joe Lee Garrett’s driver’s license back to his patrol car.  Several minutes had passed while Deputy White ran the license, and then things took a dramatic turn for the worst. Joe Lee Garrett approached the officer’s patrol car, pulled out a gun, and then shot the officer just above his left eye.

Immediately after shooting the deputy, Garrett snatched his license and fled the scene of the crime, along with the two female passengers. Police have since arrested one of the two women riding in the car with Garret.

As CBS News reports:

Police say Garrett turned himself in in Alabama just hours after the shooting happened and is being charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, and is currently being held as a fugitive from justice.

He faces additional charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, obstruction, possession of a firearm during a felony, and fleeing and attempting to elude.

Harris County officials tell CBS affiliate WRBL that Garrett admitted to shooting the deputy during the traffic stop. However, he did not identify the two other women in the car at the time of the incident.

One of the women has since been identified as Lytishia Horace, and is also being held as a fugitive from justice at a jail in Alabama. She awaits to be extradited to Georgia in connection to the shooting. Currently, Garrett and Horace are both being held without bond. Garrett faces aggravated assault on a police officer, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, obstruction of justice, and fleeing and attempting to elude the scene of a crime.

The officer was rushed to the hospital, and it appears as though he will survive the brutal attack. “Thank God the bullet didn’t hit his brain,”Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley told CBS affiliate WRBL.

To the PANSY ASSED LAWYERS that make and write out CRIMINAL LAWS. Get off your ASSES: If you shoot some on in the HEAD THAT’S ATTEMPTED MURDER, not Aggravated Assault!!!! Hitting an OFFICER in a FIST FIGHT is Aggravated Assault a BIG DIFFERENCE PEOPLE.

Hitting an officer in a fistfight is either; battery, harassment, or assault, depending on which state it happens in. If an injury requiring hospitalization occurs to an officer in the line of duty, then it may be a more serious charge, but otherwise, cops are citizens just like anyone else. Shooting anyone in the area of any vital organ is attempted murder.
