Wade Corley said he got a call saying his brother had been shot.

"So I'm going crazy and then they pass the phone to my brother," he said.

At the time Michael didn't know if he was going to make it and he asked me to pray for him, Wade Corley said. He also asked to see his sons.

"Get those boys to me as fast you can," he recalled his brother saying.

Michael Corley has been with the Henry Sheriff's Office since 1998, according to the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council.

Snellville Police Chief Roy Whitehead said one of the deputies shot is the father of one of the city's officers. Whitehead joined multiple local agencies in asking for prayers for those involved in the shooting and their families.

"This is terrible and our hearts go out to the officer's family and the Locust Grove Police Department, as well as the injured deputies," the Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety posted on Twitter.
