GBI investigating deadly police-involved shooting

Posted: Updated:

EUHARLEE, Ga. (AP) - The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is probing the death of a teen who was fatally shot by a police officer in Bartow County.

GBI spokeswoman Sherry Lang tell FOX 5 News that two Euharlee police officers were serving two probation violation warrants Friday night when a 17-year-old boy opened the door with a gun pointed at them.

Lang says the teen was shot once and the second officer called for medical assistance.

Lang says the case will be handed over to a district attorney when the GBI's investigation is complete.

Euharlee is about 50 miles northwest of downtown Atlanta.
