Authorities say a man who shot and wounded a deputy outside a courthouse in Georgia was heavily armed and planned to take hostages.
Forsyth County Sheriff Duane Piper says suspect Dennis Marx was shot and killed Friday. He says Marx drove a vehicle up to the courthouse steps, threw out homemade “spike strips” designed to flatten car tires and fired at a deputy who came out of the courthouse, shooting the officer in the leg. Police say the deputy is OK.
