Dashcam video shows deputy-involved shooting in Dollar General parking lot

Carroll County, GA - Police dash camera video shows a deputy-involved shooting in Carroll County.

Deputy Tyler North, 26, was on patrol just after 3 a.m. Monday when he approached a car sitting in a Dollar General parking lot along Highway 166.

Investigators said Joshua Mapson, 22, was asleep inside.

"He seemed very startled. He woke up. He reached for a set of car keys. He (North) thought the gentleman may have been going to roll down the window as he put the ignition on," attorney Mac Pilgrim said.

Pilgrim said his client identified himself as a deputy when he went up to the car. Dash camera video shows the driver backing up and trying to drive off.

"He (North) felt as if his life was threatened," Pilgrim said. "His vehicle is a 2,000 pound weapon."

North fired approximately seven rounds, hitting Mapson in the hand, according to authorities.
