TIFT COUNTY, GA (WALB) - A Tift County man is recovering after being shot Sunday morning during a 12-hour stand-off with deputies. Deputies were called to a shooting at 180 Connell Ray Road at 2:00 AM.

That was where 20-year-old James Philip Walker told them his neighbor 71-year-old James Wylie Ray shot out a back window of a pick-up truck. When deputies tried to talk to him, he barricaded himself in his home.

The Special Response Team made up of specially trained officers was called out. The 12-hour stand off ended when Ray shot at a deputy, and he fired back hitting Ray in his arm. He was taken to Tift Regional Medical Center.

That deputy is on administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation of the shooting.
