Recently Georgia police carried out a home invasion of a house they never had a warrant to enter. In the course of the illegal raid, one officer was shot. But now it has been proven that it was a fellow police officer who pulled the trigger.
At first, the DeKalb County police claimed the homeowner had shot one of their officers. But now an investigation has proven that was never the case.
Police entered the home, on a burglary call, and one officer was accidentally shot by another officer, not by the homeowner. But that was after officers shot the homeowner and his dog.
Watch the local report below (story continues below).
Local WXIA reports that the incident happened at about 7:35 Monday night.
Three officers showed up at first. But when no contact was made to verify what they thought was that address’s burglar alarm, they broke in through a screened porch, which they described as an “unlocked door”.
The officers saw the dog who lived on the premises. They immediately shot and killed the animal.
Shortly after that, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation says a male in the home, later determined to be the homeowner, was also shot by the officers.
The GBI says that an officer was shot, but it turns out he was shot by a fellow officer, not by the homeowner.
Local 11 Alive News reports that “Alexander said officers received a vague location description of the burglary-in-progress call and ended up entering the wrong home. The 911 call described the home as a brick and tan one-story home. 11 Alive has requested the audio and transcript of that 911 call.”
They also add that “DeKalb County Police have declined to release that information at this time,” which continues to be the case.
The homeowner was shot in the leg, but he was treated at Atlanta Medical Center and later released.
