ATLANTA (AP) -- Authorities have arrested a Stephens County
Sheriff's Office training coordinator they say made false
statements to Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents investigating
the shooting death of a north Georgia pastor.

GBI agents interviewed Lt. Edwin Wilson after Billy Shane
Harrison, a Stephens deputy serving with a multi-jurisdictional
drug task force, was involved in the shooting death of Jonathan

Ayers, a pastor at Shoal Creek Baptist Church in Lavonia, was
fatally shot Sept. 1 by Harrison in Toccoa.

Authorities allege that Wilson made false statements to
investigators on June 11 with regards to Harrison's training.

Ayers died after he fled undercover officers in a car, striking
an officer.
