BAKER COUNTY, GA (WALB) - A struggle with a South Georgia deputy led to gunfire Saturday night on Bouie Road.

Orcha Mackeroy called police on his brother 53-year-old Terry Mackeory.

Orcha asked Terry to leave and go home to his trailer right next door, his brother refused and also argued with another family member.

When a deputy got there he tried to arrest the man but was unable to handcuff him.

The two stayed on the ground for several minutes, after a while the suspect got lose and a shot was fired hitting him in the side.

Family says back-up should have been there sooner.

Orcha Mackeroy said the deputy tried to calm Terry with pepper spray and his baton before shooting.

We are told Terry is recovering from that bullet wound.

The sheriff's office turned the case over to the GBI.
