Atlanta Journal-Constitution

SPALDING COUNTY, Ga. — A Spalding County deputy remained in critical condition Saturday but he is expected to recover from the gunshot wound he received to his face by a man threatening suicide, according to sheriff’s office Capt. Tony Ranieri.

Deputy Joe Buice had taken cover behind his patrol car when Michael Stringer came out the front door of his house on East McIntosh Road firing an assault rifle. One of the bullets passed through the car’s windshield, the head rest and then the cage before hitting Buice in the face. Two deputies positioned on the side of Stringer's house returned fire.
