WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ga. (WRDW) -- A Sandersville man was arrested in Davisboro, Ga., on Thursday after allegedly breaking into a home.
The Washington County Sheriff's Office was called to the home on West Brown Street after someone called and said that Michael Braddy broke into the home while he was armed with a gun. Investigators say the victim was shot at once during the incident.
