Former jail employee killed by deputy after welfare call to 911

Both the GBI and Spalding County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the shooting late Wednesday evening. Sheriff Darrell Dix said two deputies were dispatched to a home for reports of a man who had a gun. That man was 48-year-old Guy Lynn Scott, Jr. Police initially said he threatened suicide but later said the 911 call was for a wellfare check. This is often standard practice for a law enforcement agency after a shooting involving one of their own. According to police, Scott worked at the county jail between 1991 and 200 as a detention officer.
