Another Victim of the Drug War
Sad day here in Atlanta…
A 92-year-old Atlanta woman is dead after she opened fire and shot three undercover narcotics officers serving a search warrant on her home.
At a news conference Tuesday night, Atlanta assistant police Chief Alan Dreher said the unidentified woman was alone in the house when the officers arrived and announced themselves. He said the shootout erupted when they were refused entry and broke down the front door.
The three officers were wounded and were all listed in stable condition Tuesday night.
The woman died of gunshot wounds in her home, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
While police did not name the woman, Sarah Dozier identified her as her aunt, Kathryn Johnston, who kept an old pistol in the high-crime neighborhood.
But I’m sure this 92-year-old woman was a big-time dealer, huh?
PS – From the description given, it seems clear that the officers were justified in returning fire after this woman shot at them. My argument is that they never should have been there in the first place.
