Atlanta Police raid wrong home, kill dog and shoot another Officer


9-1-2015

Police officers who arrived at the wrong metro Atlanta home for a report of suspicious activity shot the man who lives there, killed his dog and "likely" shot a fellow officer, leaving him seriously wounded, authorities said Tuesday.

Three police officers found an unlocked door at the rear of one house they apparently thought matched a description provided by a 911 caller, according to a statement by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Once inside, two officers fired their guns at a dog, killing it.

A man in the home who exited a room off the kitchen was also shot by police, GBI officials said. A police officer was shot in the hip and listed in serious condition at Grady Memorial Hospital.

GBI officials said there is no evidence the residents had committed any crimes.

DeKalb police Chief Cedric Alexander acknowledged Monday night that DeKalb officers responded to the wrong home. All three officers have been placed on administrative leave.
