Officers involved in fatal shooting in Lowndes County

Nov 16, 2018

 Two Hayneville Police officers have been placed on administrative leave following a fatal shooting Wednesday night. The State Bureau of Investigation has been called in to handle the case. An investigator with SBI says the officers were called to the home of 55 year old George Crenshaw Wednesday to serve multiple warrants against him. During that process, the investigator says Crenshaw came at the men with a large kitchen knife. Witnesses are being quoted as saying the officers gave verbal commands for Crenshaw to drop the knife before shots were fired. His injuries prove to be fatal. The Lowndes County District Attorney’s Office requested that SBI take over the investigation.
