GBI: Acworth man killed after trying to harm wife, shooting at deputies

By Asia Simone Burns
An Acworth man was shot and killed by Pickens County deputies Saturday after he reportedly violated a restraining order, tried to harm his wife and shot at law enforcement officers, officials said.

Derek Cooper, 52, was fatally shot during an incident at a home in Talking Rock, the GBI said in a news release.

Pickens deputies were sent to the home about 11 a.m. after a 911 caller reported that Cooper was trespassing on the property. The 911 caller said Cooper had tried to kill his wife during a domestic incident earlier in the week and had an active restraining order against him.

Man shoots suspected thief in Gig Harbor during fight near elementary school

A 24-year-old Gig Harbor man shot someone suspected of stealing from a construction site after the suspect attacked him with a baton and brass knuckles, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

The incident started about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday when a resident heard loud music coming from a vehicle parked at the intersection of 64th Avenue and 41st Street NW, near Artondale Elementary School.

The neighbor took a handgun and went to investigate due to recent break-ins at the school.

He found a man, later identified as a 30-year-old Bremerton resident, on school property and told him to leave.

A fight broke out and the neighbor fired at the man, striking him once.

Catch and release, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes? Wasn’t there, so I don’t know the thought process of the prosecutors.

    That is a very “retro” AR carbine.

      What’s that thing atop the carry handle?
      Kinda defeats both purposes.

        And they left off the chain saw bayonet.

        That piece of paper the judge gives out don’t protect nobody. Get a weapon girls, and be ready to defend yourself.

        Instead of catch and release, it should be scale/skin. gut. and fry.

        Got to go to the big city. Wish me luck. C y’all this afternoon. Save me a serving of whatever ‘Ed cooks for noon dinner.

        Roh-Dog keep an eye on my crown.

      • Maybe one of those red dot sights atop the carry handle.

        So you are saying the Samsonite carrying handle is obstructed by the ACOG? As Drill Sergeant Williams always said “wha’ y’ think you going t’ the Airport…(expletive)? Ain’t no luggage check round here son! Ya better carry that thing like you are going to shoot somin’ with it!

        IIRC, That was the original charging handle.

        • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman says:

          Oops. I was thinking of the loop at the front of the carry handle of the AR shown in the linkee article.

    While reading the AR15 linkee, I couldn’t help but hear “My Little Armalight” in my head.

  3. I didn’t see any rioting in Pickens County so I imagine the guy that was killed by the PD on Saturday morning was white.

    Re that antique boomstick, my LGS has an Aimpoint 2000 iffin someone would like to do a retro build. I can ask the price, lmk.
