DA: Deputy justified in shooting armed man during chase

MACON, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia district attorney says a deputy was justified in shooting and wounding an armed suspect. Bibb County District Attorney David Cooke said Monday that Deputy Jeremiah Moneypenny was justified when he shot Benjamin Curtis Bivins on March 1. Bivins was released from the hospital and faces several charges. Cooke says Moneypenny saw Bivins fire two shots at a man and told Bivins to put his weapon down. Bivins didn't comply and fled. Cooke said during the chase, Bivins turned to look at the deputy while still holding the gun, so Moneypenny fired at Bivins and the two exchanged gunfire.
