The Haralson County Sheriff’s office and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation were at a home on Moeser Road in Tallapoosa, where deputies said they responded to reports of a shooting.
When they got to the home, officers said Nathan Larry Mayfield came out of the house with a pistol in his hand. As he was talking to police, he shot himself in the head.
Officers found two men inside the home. Dillion Dobbs, 21, was dead in a bedroom. Joseph Dobbs, 20, was found with a gunshot wound to the head. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. His condition has not been released.
Channel 2′s Tyisha Fernandes talked to a neighbor, who said he heard that Mayfield shot his two autistic grandchildren before getting into a standoff with police and shooting himself in the head.
“This little town and this little road right here, that’s insane,” the neighbor said.
