APD Cop kills son, then self
September 21, 2004
[GA] Albany, Georgia -- A little after four Tuesday afternoon Albany Police Corporal Andrew Hayslip and his ex-girlfriend argued outside a Dougherty County Extended Day School building on South Monroe Street. Hayslip opened fire. He killed his young son and wounded the child's mother and then killed himself. Albany Police surrounded the old school building, rushing to a shooting. They discovered it was one of their own... Hayslip was a 15 year veteran of the force, but was arrested March 31, 2003 for domestic violence. He was charged with terroristic threats, Battery, and cruelty to children. Hayslip went through pre-trial intervention, and was allowed to continue working as a patrol officer...
See comments section.
"...Andrew and Austin Hayslip are dead now, but maybe something can be salvaged from two wasted lives. Maybe we can look closer at the people we care about, and see the things we may not want to see. Maybe someone can have the courage to stand up, to help someone they love get the help they need..."
