Tenisha Felio needed help from police, but when she dialed 911 in Gwinnett County she didn’t think they would kill her husband in the couple’s own bedroom.
The Felios’ case and others are examined in the new AJC/Channel 2 Action News investigation of police shootings across Georgia. The reporters spent months identifying and examining 166 police shooting deaths across the state.
One of the most surprising findings is the number of people killed in their own homes by police. We take a look at this Shot at Home phenomena in Sunday’s Atlanta Journal-Constitution in the latest installment of our Over the Line police shootings series. You can also examine all the Shot at Home cases we identified in an online presentation that will be posted Saturday at MyAJC.com.
Channel 2 Action News’s Jodie Fleischer will broadcast a broader look at Shot at Home cases on Monday at 6.
Our previous story that examined the shooting death of a Brunswick mother, Caroline Small, has gained national attention and raised questions about the investigation into her death following a low-speed chase.
Fulton County DA Paul Howard reopened the police shooting death case of Ariston Waiters after our story in May. It is set to go to a new grand jury in coming months.
