Last year’s shooting of an unarmed mentally ill Black man in Atlanta has prompted prosecutors to seek an indictment against the White police officer involved in his death, The New York Times reports.

Hill died in March after his encounter with Officer Robert Olsen. The officer responded to a call on the day of March 9 at an apartment building where Hill, previously diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, was having a mental episode.

Witnesses claimed the 27-year-old had his hands in the air during the encounter, but Olsen argued Hill did not comply with his orders. Partially naked, Hill was then shot twice in the torso. His death sparked local protests about police treatment of the mentally ill. Hill’s family confirmed his PTSD with reporters, saying he was deployed to Afghanistan during his time in the Air Force.


Dekalb County District Attorney Robert James and Christopher Chestnut, the attorney for the Hill family joined Roland Martin on NewsOne Now to discuss the police shooting death of Anthony Hill. Watch their conversation in the video clip below.

TV One’s NewsOne Now has moved to 7 A.M. ET, be sure to watch “NewsOne Now” with Roland Martin, in its new time slot on TV One.


On Thursday, Attorney Robert D. James Jr. of DeKalb County told reporters he planned to recommend the veteran officer be indicted on felony murder, aggravated assault, and violation of oath of office charges.

Via The New York Times:

“Our position is that the facts and the circumstances surrounding the shooting death of Anthony Hill warrant a charge for felony murder,” Mr. James said at a news conference here on Thursday morning.

A civil grand jury investigated Hill’s death last year and suggested officials look into the case. Bridget Anderson, Hill’s girlfriend who witnessed the shooting, said she was pleased with the possibility of an indictment.

Olsen will be allowed to testify before the grand jury before a decision is made.
