A sheriff's deputy in Atlanta, Georgia, shot and killed a man who broke into his home just before midnight on Saturday, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
The Fulton County Sheriff's deputy had just gotten off of work when he received a notification from his Ring doorbell camera that showed the intruder breaking into his home.
When the deputy arrived at his home in southern Atlanta, he spotted the intruder walking away with tools and other items. An investigation later revealed that the items had been taken from the deputy's home and a backdoor had been kicked in.
The alleged intruder started walking down a gravel road and stepped into the woods, at which point the deputy, who was still wearing his police uniform but in his personal car, followed him.

"While in the woods, the deputy and man had an altercation and during this time, the deputy shot the man," the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.
When first responders arrived, the deputy was performing CPR on the man, who was transported to a local hospital and pronounced deceased. The deputy, meanwhile, had a minor ankle injury.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is now conducting an investigation and will turn over their findings to the Fulton County District Attorney.
