DUBLIN, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Dublin Judicial Circuit District Attorney Craig Fraser will hand over the shooting investigation into the death of a Laurens County man killed by a sheriff’s deputy to the Georgia Attorney General. 

Fraser is looking over the David Hooks case file. He released a statement to 41NBC saying:

"Once I have finished my review of this case, the file will be given to the Attorney General of Georgia who will select another District Attorney to determine what action will be taken."

Fraser adds this is the only comment he will be making about this case. 


The shooting investigation into the death of a Laurens County man killed by a sheriff’s deputy is now in the hands of Dublin Judicial Circuit District Attorney Craig Fraser. 

Eve Rogers with the Eastman GBI office tells 41NBC the David Hooks case was turned over to Fraser about two weeks ago.

A Laurens County sheriff’s deputy shot and killed Hooks during a drug raid at his Dublin home on September 24th. The sheriff’s office released a statement saying Hooks was shot after he grabbed a gun and acted aggressively toward deputies. 

The Hooks family attorney claims deputies did not follow protocol when they served their search warrant.
