Suspect shoots at Elberta police chief

Elberta Police Chief Mickey Pledger got more than what he bargained for Sunday night, when he went to retrieve a file from his vehicle.

Pledger said after he got the file, he turned around to go back into the building. When he did, there was a man standing in between Pledger and the building, staring at the building. He was wearing all black clothing.

The chief asked the man if he could help him. When he did, the man whipped around and fired a shot at Pledger, then took off. Pledger drew his weapon and fired on shot. He doesn’t know if it hit the suspect.
