Burglary suspect wounded in officer-involved shooting in Milledgeville

A 50-year-old Atlanta man is recovering from a gunshot wound in a Macon hospital after he was shot Wednesday morning by a police officer following a string of burglaries and a brief chase.

Antonio Craig Martin is also a suspect in a pair of burglaries in Milledgeville as well as others in the surrounding area, according to Mary H. Chandler, special agent in-charge of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Region 6 Office in Milledgeville.

The shooting followed a pair of burglaries at two businesses and a brief vehicle chase that ended at the Oconee Greenway Park in downtown Milledgeville.

The chase ended when the suspect crashed a Chevrolet pickup truck that he had reportedly stolen from a business in Eatonton several hours earlier.

The police officer, whose name was not released by authorities, was not injured.

Martin is also a suspect in two break-ins of businesses and the theft of an older model pickup truck in Eatonton, The Union-Recorder has learned.

Martin, who sustained a gunshot wound to the foot, is recuperating at The Medical Center, Navicent Health in Macon, according to the GBI press release.

Authorities said Martin, who was just released from the Putnam County Jail in Eatonton just a few hours before his alleged crime spree in Eatonton, Milledgeville and Sparta, was treated at the scene by personnel with Grady Emergency Medical Services. He was later airlifted by an AirEvac helicopter from Milledgeville to the Macon trauma center.

Martin now faces a litany of criminal charges.

McCleary woman says she had no choice when she shot, killed estranged husband

by Keith Eldridge
MCCLEARY, Wash. — A woman says she had no choice but to defend herself and her friend when she shot and killed her estranged husband Wednesday night at a McCleary home.

The man had a domestic violence protection order against him and she says he broke in and attacked them with a knife.

The Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office says this all unfolded at about 9:25 p.m. Wednesday in the 400 block of West Elma Hicklin Road on the outskirts of town.

The 47-year-old estranged husband broke in and was confronted by a 60-year-old man, a friend of the woman.

“A struggle ensued with the man with the knife and a 36-year-old female who was home at the time was able to shoot the suspect with the knife fatally wounding him,” said Undersheriff Brad Johansson.

“Stupid Glock. …..” DaHell you expect ‘beans? After all, they took the time tested designs of His Most Saintly John Moses Browning (Howitzer be his name) and bastardized it with plasticized polymers. Let us raise a glass to JMB, Colonel Colt, Messrs Smith AND Wesson, and others who continue to make firearms out of metal…As God in all His Heavens decreed they should be. Clicking on the linky did give us a free shot of some eye candy. ‘Ed prepping us for Sunday? A double DRT from the archives is always better than nothing. We all love stories with a happy ending. Who here hasn’t seen The Outlaw Josey Wales more than once? A personal connection to the FIRST Story. Milledgeville is basically cross the county line and upstream from me. I have Compatriots who are LEO there City and County. Good chance I know the officers involved. Excellent overall group of Men and Women and BZ for taking out a career criminal. The area from which the dirtbag was released is only 20 miles up the road. Here’s the hook. It is, at a maximum, a 30 minute ambulance ride from the local hospital in Milledgeville to the Big Trauma Center in Macon. Why/who daHell made the decision to Life Flight, in a helicopter, someone with a foot wound? A FOOT WOUND!!!! A number of hours after he was “wounded?” And from another report I got from a local deputy, it was a grazing type, ricochet wound. The taxpayer… Read more »

She shot him with a knife?

Well, it was the ballistic “KGB knife,” you see… per scene three below.

Not just one facility, but two… she’s chapped.

Glock numbers their models one-up since the 17. Their next should be a M45 regardless of caliber, I believe. Or did they sneak in another when I wasn’t looking? Glad they finally got a .22, when I worked at a gun store/range I told the Glock rep that was a huge hole in their lineup. (I am 100% certain they were already working on it… he never let on though.)

She died a very brutal death.

We’ve had several suggestions here in the past for a suitably brutal punishment for this monster.

May he die screaming in terror.
