A U.S. marshal was shot on Sunday morning while serving an arrest warrant for a 19-year-old murder suspect at a mobile home park south of Atlanta, officials said. 

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp said that the officer is "doing well" and is expected to make a full recovery. It's unclear who shot him or if the officer fired any shots.
