The Paulding County Sheriff’s Office and the Dallas Police Department reported officers were called to the scene through the Dallas 911 center which dispatched officers to respond to shots fired and a man with a rifle at the Rambo Nursery Trailhead at approximately 2 p.m.

The Dallas officer, Phillip Burkett, observed Daron Holcombe holding a scoped rifle and, according to the release, officers - which included an unidentified PCSO deputy, saw Holcombe point the rifle at them.  The release said, " In response, Dallas Police Department Officer Phillip Burkett fired his service weapon at Holcombe, striking him."

Holcombe was taken to Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, GA where he is listed in critical condition. After the shooting, Holcombe’s weapon was found to be a replica air rifle with scope.

The GBI will continue its independent investigation to determine what occurred during the incident. Upon completion, it will be turned over to the Paulding Judicial Circuit District Attorney's Office for review.
