    LULA, Ga. (AP)

    Authorities say a 65-year-old man has been shot to death and a sheriff's deputy injured after an hour-long standoff near an elementary school in north Georgia.

    The school, Lula Elementary, was locked down after a witness saw
    a man with a handgun walking on a street that runs behind the
    school. Police say an off-duty officer was called to the scene, and
    the man pointed a gun at him and fled. They say the man then
    barricaded himself inside his home and a SWAT team was sent to the
    scene, and that shot were fired.

    Authorities say the man, identified as Herbert Tate, died from a
    gunshot wound shortly after arriving at Northeast Georgia Medical
    Center in Gainesville.

    The injured deputy was not identified. He was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta with a gunshot wound in his arm.

    Well, at least he won't be doing that stuff anymore.

    I am so glad the LEO wasn't killed! Just hope wounds don't cause a permanent disability.
