Man Accused of Shooting Deputy Killed in GA Shootout

A lawyer says the man accused of shooting and wounding a deputy outside a Georgia courthouse had reached a plea deal in a drug case and was expected to plead guilty the morning of the attack.

Dennis Marx was due in court Friday morning for charges related to his arrest in August of 2011.

He had been charged with selling marijuana, firearm possession, and other counts.

That same month, police filed papers to seize two dozen guns, 71 magazines and more than $24,000 in cash from Marx.

Earlier today Marx fired at police, shooting one deputy in the leg.

The officer is expected to fully recover.

Marx died in the ensuing shootout.
