Jackson, GA — Officer Sherry Hall from a local Georgia police department is currently being investigated after she reportedly lied and claimed that a Black man shot her before fleeing the scene. According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI), her claim has since been deemed to not be true, and the officer has officially been charged with issuing false statements, tampering, interference with government property and a violation of oath of office.
Joe Wooten, special agent in charge of GBI’s Milledgeville office, said in a statement, “After following leads and evidence, the investigation has now revealed that there is no, and never was, a suspect shooter at large in Jackson, Georgia.”
Even worse, it was also determined that Hall planted a shell casing from the gun on the scene to back up her claim that she was shot.
Jackson police Chief James Morgan referred to the situation as “an unfortunate incident” and the Butts County Sheriff called the situation a “horrific event” and even referred to Hall as “a criminal.”
Hall has since been arrested, released on bail, and then fired from the police force. But the investigation continues.
