News


DECATUR, Ga. -- DeKalb County's district attorney is moving forward with the indictment process in the officer-involved fatal shooting of Anthony Hill, sources close to the investigation tell 11Alive.

Hill, 27, a former Air Force veteran, was shot and killed by a DeKalb County Officer Robert Olsen back in March 2015. Police were responding to a 911 call about a naked man wandering the apartment complex acting erratically. Authorities said the naked man, Hill, lunged at Officer Olsen in a threatening manner.

Last October, a civil grand jury recommended more investigation into the fatal shooting. After that announced, DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James said he would take the grand jury's recommendations into consideration. 

James has scheduled a news conference at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday to "announce developments regarding" Hill's case. 

Hill's family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit, saying the  death was the "direct result of a policy and practice on the part of DeKalb County and its officials."
