GA: Armed Husband Forced to Shoot Local Attorney
Fitzharris threatened to "f*** y'all up." Then he promised to kill himself. Then he tried climbing the roof of a nearby shed. Instead, he bolted down the stairs, tried to hit Alice and Delbert Hanshaw, and ran to the front of the house, records show.
The couple followed him. Still armed, Delbert Hanshaw said, "If you don't leave, I will kill your a**," records show.
"You don't have any bullets," Fitzharris replied.
Delbert Hanshaw fired a shot into the ground. Fitzharris lunged.
In self-defense, Delbert Hanshaw pumped two rounds into Fitzharris' right arm, records show. When police responded around 11:55 p.m., they found Fitzharris in his car. He was loaded into an ambulance, taken to Hamilton Medical Center in Dalton, Ga., and returned to jail with a cast.
