Naked unarmed Black man shot and killed by White police officer in Atlanta

unarmed

Another unarmed Black man has been shot and killed by the police. According to a report by WSBTV, the issue occurred after residents in a DeKalb County, Georgia, apartment complained about a naked man running through the neighborhood.

Apparently, the man was erratic and appeared to be high on medication or drugs. When police arrived, they said the man, Anthony Hill, 27, continued to have behave oddly.

At some point, police said that Hill charged at an officer. The unidentified White police officer pulled his weapon and fatally shot Hill. The officer was also equipped with a baton, pepper spray, and a taser, which could’ve been used instead of his gun

Over the past year, several shootings of unarmed Black men have sparked rallies and hope for change in police tactics. However, the officers who killed Michael Brown and Eric Garner were not indicted.
