Dedria Brown Update

Dedria Brown, the Heard County 911 employee who was shot in a hunting accident last week, was able to speak with us by phone this afternoon from the hospital and reports that she is doing much better.

Brown, who is now in a regular room at Atlanta Medical Center, sounded very tired but was able to give us a brief statement.

“I am so thankful for all the prayers, messages, and support we have received from the community I know I couldn’t have come this far without them,” stated Brown.

We wish a speedy recovery to Dedria and hope she is back to herself very soon!

(*Editor’s Note: Our original report erroneously stated that Brown had been shot by a .22 caliber rifle while rabbit hunting, but in fact the gun in question was a 20 gauge shotgun. We apologize for our error as we do take much pride here at the Heard Citizen on the accuracy of all of our facts.)
