Police: Officer shot teen skipping school

The person shot by a DeKalb County police officer Tuesday morning was a 16-year-old Southwest DeKalb High School student skipping school, not a would-be burglar as initially believed, police said.

DeKalb County Police Chief Cedric Alexander said Wednesday the shooting was an “unintentional misfire.”

“It has been revealed to us that the subject shot by one our DeKalb police officers was not associated with the burglary on Streamside Court,” Alexander said. “He was truant from school and began running when he saw police officers in the area.”
