Georgia Cop "Likely Shot Accidentally" By Other Police Officer While Responding To Wrong Home posted 09/02/2015, 12:47 PM (Cop Block)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
A DeKalb County cop was likely shot by a fellow police officer after responding to the wrong house Monday evening.

The incident happened around 7:35 p.m. when officers were responding to a call about a burglary-in-progress.

DeKalb County Public Safety Director Dr. Cedric Alexander said officers received a vague description of the location of a burglary-in-progress, and the officer entered the wrong residence. The officers walked around the house into the backyard, and opened the back door into the home.  The officers were greeted by a playful brindle boxer, and gunshots were fired.  The officer, the homeowner, and the boxer were struck by gunfire.  The dog was killed.

“Early investigation indicates that the injured officer was likely shot accidently by one of the other officers on the scene,” GBI officials said in a statement.

GBI spokesman Scott Dutton said it was still too early to tell exactly who fired the gunshots. Dutton said he wasn’t aware if anyone in the home was armed besides the police. GBI officials said there is no evidence the residents of the home had committed any crimes.

Tama Colson, who lives two doors from where the police shot the man and his dog, said she witnessed police cars speeding past her as she was on a walk, and shortly after heard gunshots.

Colson said she saw her wounded neighbor and his wife fleeing their home and the man was yelling: “They shot me and they shot my dog!”

“He told me they were in the house watching television when they heard something in the backya
