ROCKDALE COUNTY, Ga. — A man was shot by Rockdale County sheriff's deputies responding to a home invasion call on Tuesday, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said on Wednesday.

According to the GBI, the man was life-flighted to Grady Hospital in Atlanta and is in critical but stable condition.

The bureau said that deputies responded to a 911 call by a woman in Stockbridge who "reported a man was in her home with a gun."

The GBI said the woman knew the man. When deputies arrived on scene, they said the 20-year-old man was "no longer in the home" and that while searching the home, more 911 calls reporting a man with a gun came in.

The GBI said around 3:45 p.m. deputies found the man "inside of a truck on a private property" in the area, and that he then "got out of the truck with a gun."

"Deputies shot (the man) and he was life flighted to the hospital where he remains in critical but stable condition," a GBI release said. "The GBI will conduct an independent investigation. Once complete, the case file will be turned over to the Rockdale County District Attorney’s Office for review."
