Arrested – Charges

Phillips’ brother, Brad Phillips, 41, was arrested shortly after the shooting that left the Decatur County Sheriff’s deputy seriously injured, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

The shooting unfolded when a Decatur County Sheriff’s Deputy tried to assist a Seminole County, Florida, Sheriff’s deputy in a chase on Highway 84 that began in Florida and crossed into Georgia, Griffin said. During the chase, the occupants of a white Chevrolet pickup that officers were trying to stop for speeding and recklessness opened fire with what investigators believed to be a .30 caliber rifle. Officers returned fire as the pursuit continued, investigators said.

“The suspects entered the driveway of a Decatur County residence and attempted to enter by shooting through the door,” according to the statement from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The Decatur County deputy arrived on the scene as the suspects were fleeing the residence in Brinson, Georgia, and one of the brothers allegedly shot the deputy while he was still in his vehicle.

The suspects crashed into a wooded area, according to investigators. Brad Phillips was arrested shortly after the accident, while Troy Phillips was able to flee the scene on foot. The Decatur County deputy was seriously injured when he was shot under the arm, Griffin said.

The agent, whose name was not released, was airlifted in a helicopter ambulance in critical condition to Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare, about 50 miles south of Brinson, Griffin said. Griffin said the Seminole County agent who was shot in the incident was treated at a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening.

Brad Phillips was charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer. The charges against his brother were pending. The shooting occurred when officers tried to stop a vehicle for going 80 miles per hour on the highway, authorities told ABC affiliate WTXL-TV in Tallahassee.

Investigation Report

While the search for Troy Phillips was being conducted on Sunday, Griffin said in a Facebook post that investigators believed he was still in the Brinson area and advised local residents to contact law enforcement officers immediately if detected.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is leading the investigation because it involves law enforcement officers, authorities said.
