A manhunt for a suspect accused of shooting a police officer is underway in Georgia.

The Henry County Police Department announced it’s looking for 22-year-old Jordan Jackson after he allegedly shot at an officer who was responding to a domestic dispute call Thursday evening. The officer was transported to a local hospital, but his condition remains unknown.

A witness recalled the incident stating, “all of a sudden I heard two gunshots. I looked straight forward and that’s when I saw the officer’s hand go over his chest. He fell straight back on the driveway, I turned around, told my son to run, we all three ran, hid in a neighbor’s garage.”

In the meantime, police are also searching for the suspect’s 2016 white Honda Civic, but have also said he could now be in a white 2021 Dodge Ram with Georgia tags. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has confirmed it is assisting in the investigation and has urged anyone with information about Jackson’s whereabouts to contact authorities.
