The Bartow County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man who allegedly fired multiple shots at deputies on Tuesday night.
Dispatch sent deputies to a residence on Mountain View Road near Acworth at around 8:50 about locating 39-year-old Justin Ray Green, who was living in an outside building on the property.
Complainants reported Green to be intoxicated, acting disorderly, and discharging a firearm at the call time. Green also had outstanding warrants for his arrest from a prior incident.
Upon arrival, deputies encountered Green in the backyard of the property. Green fired multiple shots at deputies and fled into the wooded area behind the residence. Both Green and Deputies exchanged gunfire during the incident.
Law enforcement established a perimeter, but deputies did not locate Green.
Georgia Bureau of Investigations agents responded to the scene because the officer involved shooting and took over the investigation.
Green is wanted for multiple misdemeanor and felony warrants, including aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Law enforcement considers Green to be armed and dangerous. Please contact 911 if you see or know the whereabouts of Justin Ray Green and do not approach him.
