“At some point, Perdue was observed with a firearm and officers discharged their weapons, fatally striking Perdue,” Miles said.
“A firearm was located near the subject and appeared to have been discharged,” the statement said.
The GBI is investigating, which is standard in use-of-force cases.
“Our officers fired,” Atlanta police Capt. David Villaroel said soon after the incident, “maybe as many as four officers. That will be determined by the GBI.
“Whether the suspect fired or not, that will be determined by the GBI.”
This is the 58th officer-involved shooting investigation in Georgia this year, Miles said.
