BARTOW COUNTY, Ga. - An Adairsville police officer is recovering from minor injuries after he shot and killed a fugitive during a highway confrontation early Tuesday morning.
ahold of the officer and from what I understand, he then dropped the car into drive and accelerated down the ramp toward I-75 with the officer in tow. At some point during this, the officer was able to reach his service pistol. He fired one shot striking Mr. Johnson fatally," Adairsville police Lt. Matt Fowler said.
