Georgia sheriff wants to know who shot at deputy’s house, offers reward

DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. (AP) – A Georgia sheriff is offering a $10,000 reward for information that results in an arrest and conviction after someone opened fire on the home of one of his deputies.

Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller said in a statement that someone Monday evening “shot up the house” of the Douglas County deputy, who lives in nearby Paulding County.

Miller says no one was hurt. Authorities haven’t said whether the home was targeted because it belongs to a deputy.

In his reward announcement, the sheriff aimed comments at the perpetrator, vowing to “spare no expense or resources until you are caught.”

The shooting comes after several threats against officers nationwide, and separate shootings in July that claimed the lives of three law officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and five police officers in Dallas.
