DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ga. — The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is assisting after a deadly deputy-involved shooting in Douglas County.
Officials with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said that, early Wednesday morning, Justin Oakes, 32, walked into the Sheriff’s Office lobby looking for somewhere to stay.
“They provided him with water, a place to sit and watch television. And he had kind of been in and out, back and forth from the lobby," Sgt. Jesse Hambrick, with the Sheriff’s Office, said.
But hours later, around 2 a.m., Oakes made an unusual 911 call from the lobby bathroom.
"I'm dealing with Charles Manson here in Douglas County. He's trying to kill me. I'm fighting," Oakes said during a 911 call released by the GBI.
“I'm fighting for my life. They got radiation in the damn room where they're about to blow my back out. I need Atlanta police to come down quick. I'm fightin' for my life. I'm in Douglasville jail and they're trying to kill me.”
“Well, I just saw you out here in the lobby,” the dispatcher told Oakes. “Are you in the bathroom up front?”
The phone then goes silent before the dispatcher speaks again.
"Justin? Are you in the bathroom up front where I talked to you earlier? Hello?" the dispatcher asks.
Oakes didn't come back on the line.
