As deputies with the Grady County Sheriff’s Office were assisting Cairo Police with a manhunt for a murder suspect Friday afternoon, 911 dispatchers received a call that a man was waving a gun and threatening to kill people in the 2800 block of Ga. Hwy. 188.
An argument between mother and son turned violent when he retrieved a 9 mm handgun from his mother’s pickup truck sometime after 1:30 p.m., and allegedly threatened to kill everyone including the livestock. The mother called 911, and the dispatcher taking the call told deputies she overheard the suspect threaten to kill any law enforcement officers when they arrived.
With deputies on the way, the mother told the dispatcher that her son was walking towards a wooded area and she was unable to tell if he still had the gun.
Once on the scene, officers ordered the suspect to raise his hands. “He finally raised his hands and we were able to move in on him,” says Capt. Chris Luckey with the Grady County Sheriff’s Office.
The gun, Luckey says, had been thrown into the woods and was recovered by deputies.
Stacey Glenn Williamson, 22, was charged with terroristic threats family violence, terroristic threats and acts, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. An older warrant was also enforced for failure to appear, and an investigation hold was placed on Williamson.
