A Troup County, Ga., man is in the hospital following a shootout with a sheriff’s deputy.

Dashcam footage of a deputy involved shooting was released Monday afternoon revealing gruesome details of the incident.

At about midnight a Troup County deputy was dispatched to the home of 60-year-old Terry Caldwell after neighbors reported hearing gun shots.

Officers say a few words were exchanged before Caldwell shot at the deputy, who returned fire. Caldwell reportedly had an AK-47-style pistol that he fired twice at the responding deputy.

The deputy shot five times, two bullets striking Caldwell in the elbow and in the torso. The deputy was not injured, and Caldwell was airlifted to Grady hospital where he underwent surgery and is in stable condition.

Caldwell’s property features a sign that reads: “No trespassers. Violators will be shot. Survivors will be shot again.” Troup County Sergeant Smith says that they had no prior issues or complaints. Click here for more.
