The morning after five police officers were fatally shot in Dallas, Texas, a police officer was shot in the St. Louis suburb of Ballwin, Missouri. Another officer was shot and injured in Valdosta, Georgia.

The Valdosta officer was shot “multiple times,” Police Chief Brian Childress said, as quoted by AP.

“He is out of surgery now. His family is at the hospital. And I’m happy to report he’s going to be fine,” Childress said. “He’s in stable condition but he’s in the ICU as a precaution.”

One of the gunshots hit the man in the abdomen, just below his bulletproof vest, Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokesman Scott Dutton said. Other bullets hit the officer in his vest.

There’s nothing to indicate the Valdosta shooting is related to the one in Dallas, Childress said, though he noted it is still early in the investigation. In Texas, five police officers were killed and seven other cops and two civilians were injured by a sniper during a peaceful protest,

“You start to wonder. But any motive of why this happened this morning would be speculation,” Childress said.

The officer was wearing a body camera, and its footage has been turned over the the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the police chief said.
