» MORE: The latest on Anthony Hill and the Chip Olsen trial
Available Monday, Episode 7: Three Eyewitnesses recounts the opening days in the trial of the former DeKalb County police officer, including emotional testimony from the apartment manager who called 911 setting in motion a chain of events that would lead to Hill’s death.
Griselle Torres summoned police after seeing Hill wandering naked around the apartment complex.
An Afghanistan war veteran and aspiring musician, Hill had stopped taking the medication he used to treat bipolar disorder.
But Torres didn’t know that. And neither did Olsen. When Olsen climbed out of his squad car, Hill began advancing toward him, ignoring the officer’s commands to stop. Olsen fired twice.
On the stand, Torres recalled her reaction when she learned what happened.
“He was laid down on the floor,” Torres said. “Naked. Bleeding. And then I was like, Why? Why did you shoot him? What did you shoot him?”
