EUHARLEE, Ga. — Channel 2 Action News has learned that a grand jury has found that a Euharlee police officer was not authorized to shoot a 17-year-old while responding to a call in February.
Authorities say Cpl. Beth Gatny fatally shot Christopher Roupe, saying Roupe was pointing a gun at her on Feb. 14 when Gatny knocked on the door of the Roupe home to serve a probation warrant to the teen’s father.
Roupe's attorney said family members told him the teen was holding a Nintendo Wii controller.
Tuesday the Cherokee County District Attorney’s Office said a grand jury heard testimony in the case over the course of two days and found that the use of force by Gatny was not authorized.
[...]The grand jury also recommended that the DA’s office take further action in the case.
