In another deadly police shooting, a white Atlanta area cop shot dead an unarmed naked black man who was possibly suffering from a mental illness, according to sources.
Reportedly, the man who was not wearing any clothing, was in the parking lot of a DeKalb County apartment complex behaving ‘erratically.’
When a DeKalb County police officer responded to the call of a ‘naked man knocking on doors, crawling around on the ground and acting deranged’ the scene turned fatal.
Cops say the man ran at the officer before being shot twice. Though there was no weapon found, the officer reportedly feared for his life.
Numerous protestors have taken to the streets after a string of deadly police shootings including one where a DeKalb police officer shot dead another black man who called 911 after his girlfriend was attacked and stabbed in his apartment on last year.
Though details are sketchy, the naked man in this incident was not initially identified but was later reported to be 27 year-old Air Force Veteran Anthony Hill.
