ATLANTA (CBS46) –
Authorities in Jackson said they will issue a warrant for the arrest of a police officer who allegedly lied about being shot by an unidentified suspect only described as a black male.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation issued warrants for the arrest of Officer Sherry Hall. Hall is accused of issuing false statements and writings and concealment of facts, tampering with evidence, interfering with government property and violation of oath.
Hall reportedly then fired two shots into the wood line near Camellia Court using the Glock .22 issued to her by the Jackson Police Department.
Warrants issued by a GBI investigator allege Hall used a second firearm, also issued to her by the police department, to plant a shell casing she said came from a gun fired by the suspect. The warrants said GBI didn’t initially know about that Glock .27.
The warrants say Hall used the Glock .27 before defacing it. She also reportedly didn’t tell authorities that she had been issued the gun.
Officer said she was shot, protected by vest
At the time of the alleged shooting, Jackson’s Police Chief said the gunman fired one shot and Officer Hall fired at least two shots back. Hall said she was struck in the abdomen, but protected by her vest.
GBI took over the case. Agents combed the area and knocked on doors trying to find clues to lead them to the shooter. Hall was placed on paid administrative leave and offered counseling to grieve. She was recovering at home.
“I’ve talked with her, she’s in good spirits and really she is ready to try to come back to work,” said the chief. “She’s very professional at all costs, she’s highly trained, she gives it her all.”
Previous felony conviction
Records show Hall has also been previously charged with a felony. She was charged with first-degree criminal damage to property after an arrest in Spalding County in the 90s and received a five year probation.
