Monday’s incident marked the 59th police shooting the state agency has been asked to investigate this year, and the first of two investigations it opened in 24 hours.
In Holly Springs, a man suspected of trafficking drugs outside a Walmart was shot Monday night by members of a Cherokee County narcotics squad and later died after striking two vehicles on I-575, officials said.
He was taken after the crash to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, where he died. His name was not released.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution also tracks officer-involved shootings that don’t involve the GBI, and those numbers sometimes differ from the GBI’s tally.
