Police were called to break up a fight on the night of Dec. 11. Somehow, Lewis and Waiters got into an altercation and the officer ended up shooting the teen. The autopsy report shows that Waiters was shot in the back. Police insist that Waiters reached for Lewis’s gun. Waiters was unarmed.

The attorney representing Waiter’s family, Mawli Davis, says that the family is disappointed about the jury’s decision not to indict officer Lewis. But added that they are not giving up their fight to seek justice for the slain teen.

“We’re not done. This family’s not done. They’re just hurting. Hurting in an unimaginable way. It’s just beyond belief that he’ll get to go back to work and she’ll never see her son again,” said Davis.” said attorney Mawli Davis.

Officer Lewis says he is not sure if he will return to work over fears some in the community may hold “hostility” towards him.

Waiters is the second teen shot dead by cops in Georgia in a three month period. Joetavius Stafford was shot by a MARTA police officer in October. That shooting is under investigation by the Fulton County prosecutor’s office.
