A Screven County Sheriff’s deputy remains in stable condition after being shot in the leg during a struggle with an inmate she was transporting. Deputy Kat Griffin was transporting Crystal Marie Shyrock, 32, Flemington Woods, Ellabell, Monday afternoon from Chatham County Jail to Screven County Jail, traveling on Georgia Highway 21/Savannah River Parkway around 1:15 p.m. when Shyrock ”decided to grab the officer’s gun” and a struggle ensued, said Screven County Sheriff Mike Kile. The gun fired and the bullet struck Griffin in the upper thigh, he said.
