A woman was fatally shot by Johns Creek police Saturday morning during an encounter on Abbots Bridge Road near Sweet Creek Road.
Police were dispatched to the site at 7 a.m. after a 911 call from an address on Windherst Lane reported a “demented person” armed with a knife.
The Johns Creek officers encountered the woman near Northview High School. According to public information officer Capt. Chris Byers, “several attempts were made to de-escalate the encounter through the use of less lethal force” including the use of a Taser and a foam impact round, but the suspect refused to drop the knife.
Officers then fired on the woman.
April 2018 CAIR-Georgia, a Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization, is leading the charge to help Said's family learn more about the incident that led to the woman's untimely death and to determine if her civil rights were violated by officers.
