Suspect wanted in death of Georgia cop kills himself amid standoff: police


A suspect sought in the fatal shooting of a Georgia police officer killed himself while barricaded in an apartment, police said.

Jordan Jackson, 22, who allegedly shot Henry County Police Officer Paramhans Desai as he responded to a domestic disturbance call in McDonough on Nov. 4, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound during a standoff with cops in Riverdale late Tuesday, police said.

“Jackson barricaded himself in a room while the SWAT team … addressed the situation using tactful methods, resulting in the SWAT team being feet away from the suspect,” the Henry County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. “The suspect then took his own life seconds before being captured.”
