This afternoon around 1700 Deputy Ed Caldwell responded to a dispatch call to 6665 hwy 16 for an intoxicated individual setting in the driveway, the caller was his mother that also lived at the address.  We went back and listened to the 911 recordings to make sure we had this right.  The deputy in question has over 35 years experience in law enforcement and has been on the Sheriffs department for four years after the city of Glencoe merged with the sheriffs department.  From what we can find out, after Deputy Caldwell was leaving the call, the deceased Gary Burdine followed the deputy back toward his cruiser.  This is when Deputy Ed Caldwell acted in self defense fire several shots.  He has been placed on administrative leave until the State Police conclude their investigation.  Here at GCVideoNews our thoughts and prayers go out to Gary Burdines’ family,  who’s mother is one of the most wonderful people you will ever meet and to Deputy Ed Caldwell and his family for what he is going through.
