Atlanta, GA — An unnamed DeKalb County police officer is on paid administrative leave after he shot and killed a mentally ill naked man Monday afternoon.

DeKalb County Police Chief Cedric Alexander said at a news briefing that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is taking over the investigation after it appeared the man, identified as Anthony Hill, 27, was unarmed.

Hill’s girlfriend took to twitter to protest the killing of her boyfriend.

The police say they received reports of a mentally ill man acting strangely in their apartment complex.

According to his posts on Social Media, Hill was bipolar.

The caller reported a male acting deranged, knocking on doors, crawling around on the ground naked,” Alexander said.

“The caller reported the man had taken off all his clothes and was just running around throughout the entire complex,” Alexander added.

When the officer showed up, he said the naked, unarmed man charged him, so he had to kill him.

“When the male saw the officer he charged, running at the officer,” the police chief said. “The officer told him to stop while stepping back at which point he drew his weapon and fired two shots.”

However, witnesses tell a different story. They say the man never charged the officer.

A witness told WSB-TV that Hill was hanging from a balcony, naked, before the shooting.

“He tells me, ‘I’m OK, I’m OK.’ That’s what he was saying,” the witness said, according to the news station. “He was acting crazy but he was calm like he didn’t know where he was. He was like kind of lost in his face.”

Despite an extensive search, no weapon was found at the scene.

“At this point this case has been turned over to the Georgia Bureau of Investigations for an independent outside investigation,” Alexander said in an attempt to emphasize the notion of an “external” investigation.

Henry Raco, a witness on the scene, tells CBS 46, “Now you are scared to call police if you see anything because you don’t know what police are going to do. They have license to kill people for no reason and that is scary.”

This man was naked. It was obvious that he had no weapons on his person, yet the first thing this police officer does is resort to deadly force.

Yesterday, prior to being killed, Hill made an inspirational post on his facebook page. It read, “Where I once saw death I only see life.”

Hill was also well aware of the epidemic of police killings in the US.

  1. Never ever call the police for help on an obviously mental person………….these days they just kill them!

  2. They will try to kill you jst for standing on your own property minding your own business with cloths on. All it takes in America to be killed by Cop is to do any thing they don’t like. They are so prowd to be the Law of the land today.

  3. When the camera is rolling the cops will spend all day long humanely rescuing escaped farm animals trotting down a road but when the cameras are not rolling, they will gun down just about everything just to try out their new toys in their new holsters. We the people must insist on the removal of the testosterone driven ignorance that most all PD’s employ. Insist on police officers having a minimum equivalent of a bachelors degree before they are allowed to serve the public. Shit-Can the THUGS and insist on intellectuals as peace officers. This should be mandatory given the circumstances of today.
