MARIETTA, Ga. — A neighbor is speaking out while he's on lockdown in a Marietta neighborhood Thursday night after two deputies were killed in the line of duty.
A SWAT standoff has ended in the Hampton Glen area near the McNeel Farms neighborhood. Overnight, Sheriff Craig Owens said to people were in custody.
11Alive's Hope Ford spoke with a neighbor who was on lockdown in the neighborhood.
Matt Williams said he heard rapid-fire gunshots. He estimated the shots were fired about 500 yards from his home.
"I heard it sound like fireworks, and then I saw like three or four cop cars come, and then I just heard more of them coming," Williams said. "There was probably, I would say at least a dozen cop cars just on the street."
Williams said the neighborhood is a peaceful area and there have never been any crime issues in the area.
"So this is kind of rattling everyone, as you can imagine," he said.
