11alive.com | Online fundraiser set up for wounded deputy


One of the two Henry Country deputies who were shot last week while serving a warrant in Locust Grove remains in serious condition, and an online fundraising campaign has been set up to help with his medical expenses.

Meanwhile, the funeral for the officer who was slain during the encounter is set for Saturday.

Ralph “Sid” Callaway remains at Atlanta Medical Center after being shot in the abdomen. Callaway, along with another deputy, Michael Corley, were serving a warrant on Tierre Guthrie, on Friday, Feb. 9.

The deputies called for backup and Chase Maddox, a 26-year-old Locust Grove Police officer, died after being shot three times during an ensuing shootout.

Guthrie was killed in the incident, and both Corley and Callaway were shot. Corley was released from Atlanta Medical Center later in the day.

Maddox was a five-year veteran of the Locust Grove police department after serving in the National Guard. His wife had been pregnant with their second child, and doctors induced labor earlier in the week, which resulted in a successful birth.
