Henry County Sheriff Keith McBrayer announced the death at an afternoon news conference.
One of the deputies was shot through his bullet proof vest in the stomach and is undergoing surgery.

Just when you think you know everything about the British royals , a "secret" family member comes out of the woodwork. Parisa Fitz-Henley, 41, has been cast as Meghan, and she's a dead ringer for the American actress.
"We just can't believe this happened", he said.
Both sheriff's deputies were wearing bulletproof vests at the time of the incident, McBrayer said.
The GBI said it has identified the suspect, but is withholding his name pending notification of his family.
The two Henry County deputies were veterans, McBrayer said.
Police blocked off multiple entrances of a subdivision not far from an outlet mall, and turned away people who don't live in the neighborhood.
"It's quiet. I've never had any issues and I pray I don't have any, said Rodgers, who has lived there almost two years".
"It's scary because you never know who is in your neighborhood".
