By The Associated Press
GRIFFIN - Authorities say a Griffin police officer was shot and killed while working an off-duty security job at a Waffle House location in Spalding County. <br /> <br /> Police say three people are in custody. The altercation began when 43-year-old police officer Kevin Jordan asked two men and a woman to leave the restaurant early Saturday. Police say the woman began fighting with Jordan and one of the men, 30-year-old Michael Bowman of Griffin, fired a gun three times into the officer's back when Jordan attempted to cuff the woman. <br /> <br /> Police say Jordan's brother was in the restaurant parking lot at the time and shot Bowman, who was taken to a hospital. They say Jordan's brother has a permit to carry a gun. <br /> <br /> Jordan joined the department four years ago. The GBI is investigating.
