After responding to a suspicious person call, a Clayton County, Georgia, police officer fatally shot a teen on Monday night.

The officers had gotten numerous of calls regarding several people entering a vacant home on Chippewa Drive.

When officers got there, they observed two people climbing out the back window of the home, while two others were still inside. Officers then began to give verbal commands for the suspects to exit the home.

At that point, one of the suspects, Hakim Al-Nas, came from the back of the home and saw an officer who had been in front of the home.

The officer said that Al-Nas had a firearm.

At that point, the officer requested that Al-Nas stop because he was headed to the area where the other officers were attempting to get more suspects to come out.

The officer then retrieved his gun and shot Al-Nas. The Clayton County Police Department stated that it doesn’t seem as if Al-Nas fired his weapon, but they are still investigating.

Three other people, two 18-year-olds, and a 16-year-old were taken from the home and put into custody.

Al-Nas was transported to a medical facility where he died.

The officer involved is on administrative leave, and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is now handling the investigation.
