GBI identified the person killed as 37-year-old Jomekia Turner, and says an autopsy was performed this morning.
The involved deputy is Tyler Lamon of the Thomas County Sheriff's Office.
The shooting happened on Wednesday evening when TCSO received a call of a man walking down the road with a gun.
TCSO says deputies fired beanbags at the Turner but he wouldn't stop, and eventually pointed a gun at deputies before being shot himself.
