Officer Murdered In Polk County, Georgia

Polk County, GA – An officer was murdered in a shooting and another officer was also shot in the area of Santa Claus Road and Highway 100 between Cedartown and Cave Spring, according to the Polk County Standard Journal.

The incident happened on Friday at around 11 AM during an incident involving a stolen vehicle report.

One of the responding officers was fatally shot, and the second officer was hit in their ballistic vest.

It’s not clear at this time what agency the officers were with, and they have not been identified, pending next of kin notifications.

A female suspect has been taken into custody but a male “wearing a backpack” is still on the loose.

“The Cavalry has been called out for sure,” said Chief Deputy Tom Caldwell of the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office, according to the Standard Journal.

A manhunt is now underway for the shooter. At least nine officers from Flyd County Sheriff’s Office are assisting in the manhunt.

Highway 100 has been shut down in the area.

The only suspect description at this time is a white male with a backpack. Anybody who sees a suspicious person in the area should call 911 immediately.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the murdered officer, the wounded officer, and all first responders who are hunting the killer.

UPDATE: The suspect is in custody and information on Detective Kristen Hearne has been released HERE.

    Now we know why there’s only 5 comments https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2a901a7229d42c8697a2cceaa0a0c046e6fc327ccd3f7ff614341b3527ee7099.jpg
    Now we know why the officers weren’t in fear of their lives to the point where a cop killer/shooter isn’t dead.

      White fragility, makes them cower from commenting. Tom Price quit today like the bitc# he is today, but blue is gonna stay silent like the actual cowards they really are.

  • nolie

    Two of the most offensive things Obama did have led directly to the current mess in the US. His comment that “the police behaved stupidly” when they arrested L Gates has led to the current attacks, both physically and verbally on police. Second, his comment that he didn’t like the national anthem (too war like for his taste) told his leftist followers that it was their duty to disrespect the national anthem. But he is a leftist and the MSM supports anything he says or does, so what should we expect?

    • Tabludama

      More Ferguson Effect continues.

      Obama’s police and race baiting has its consequences.

      • Jonas Blane ll

        I love how you and nolie mention Obama by name. Blame Obama for the climate. Yet you don’t mention the white scumbag Seth Spangler that actually killed the cop.

        • Tabludama

          White people hate cops too. Especially now that cops have been demonized by Black Lies Matter. There are plenty of white radicals that support BLM. The false narrative of BLM was endorsed by Obama when he invited them to the White House and sent his reps to thug Michael Browns funeral.

          Try to keep up.

          • Jonas Blane ll

            Again why aren’t you mentioning the white scumbag Seth Spangler that ACTUALLY killed the cop?

          • Tabludama

            Because when I first posted his name was unpublished. You mentioned it so I felt no need to repeat his name. BTW, the major catalyst for the Ferguson Effect is not Spangler, but President Obama. Spangler is just one of many thug cop killers who are a part of what Obama put into motion.

            Try to keep up.

          • Jonas Blane ll

            Typical excuses for white cop killers. You’d rather condemn Obama for a so called climate he created, when the numbers showed more cops killed under W, Clinton or Reagan. You’d rather condemn Obama than the white cop killer that did kill Hearne. Yet you claim you love police.

          • Tabludama

            The reason it is called the Ferguson Effect is because because unprovoked ambush murders of cops soared immediately after Ferguson. Neither Reagan, W or Clinton was in office when Ferguson happened. Try to keep up.

            Obama invited Black Lies Leaders to the White House and sent White House reps to thug Michael Browns funeral thus endorsing Black Lies Matter.

            You really are quite stupid

          • Jonas Blane ll

            Once again you keep bringing up Ferguson Obama when Hearne was killed by a white cop killer. Why is it so hard for you to condemn Seth Spangler the actual person who killed detective Hearne?

          • Tabludama

            . I have called Spragler a “thug cop killer” which certainly condemns him.

            Read the post again very slowly. Say the words out loud if that will help you understand them.

            You really are quite stupid.

            Have I mentioned this before?

        • nolie

          It goes without saying that any sane person condemns a murder, regardless of his race. A good liberal, on the other hand, only condemns certain murders.

          • Jonas Blane ll

            If what you say is true,why did you mention Obama but leave out the name of the actual cop Killer Seth Spangler?

          • nolie

            and why are you an idiot?

          • Jonas Blane ll

            I noticed you didn’t answer the question.

          • nolie

            Seth spangler is a piece of crap, like all people of any race who kill cops, as I stated early in my comments, without actually writing his name. Now please answer my question, why are you an idiot?

      The National Anthem as a song does objectively suck, though. That odd rhythm, the awkward pauses, the highs and lows your voice is expected to hit to make it sound good, and the whole murdering slaves verse.

      I’d love “America the Beautiful” to be the Anthem. It’s upbeat, 4/4 time, and sits in a comfortable vocal range. Also, no mention of murdering innocents.

      • nolie

        Not sure your comment makes any sense to a sane person.

    • Jonas Blane ll

      Why aren’t you blaming Seth Spangler by name the white scumbag that ACTUALLY killed the cop?

    • BruthaV

      The website is “Blue Lives Matter”. Why would they cover a story that isn’t about police?

      • jennifer 0.2

        Are you sure? Blue has never covered a non police related murder, kidnapping & torture.

        • BruthaV

          My question is, why should they? I come to this site to read about law enforcement officers, not crimes committed by civilians against other civilians.

          • jennifer 0.2

            Really,

            Tennessee mass shooter??

            bueller ?

            I told you why I come to this website. I have no idea what you’re talking about. Your comments are borderline psychobabble.

      • Jonas Blane ll

        They cover stories that aren’t about cops all the time.

    • Highest common denominator

      from White Settlement, ironically.

  • Jonas Blane ll

    Six cops shot/killed these week have been done so by white/white Hispanic males.

    Condolences to family and department. Rest in Peace Brother…
