Officer Kills Gwinnett Man, Family Suspicious

ATLANTA (WAOK) A Gwinnett County Officer has been placed on paid leave after he shot and killed a suspect Wednesday night. The incident happened outside of the JSD Apartments near Jimmy Carter Boulevard. According to reports, officers from the gang enforcement division noticed a group of young men involved in what appeared to be suspicious activity. The officers confronted the group asking for identification. Police say that 20-year-old Darryl Fuller pulled out a gun. Gwinnett Police Corporal Jake Smith says the officer responded by drawing his weapon and firing once.

The mother of the victim, Cassandra Williams  said that the story being told by police does not sound accurate. She said her son’s death was in vain because the shooting was unjustified.

The officer who fired his weapon, will remain on administrative leave while the investigation continues. Fuller leaves a fiancee and a 7 month old daughter.

    What the hell was he doing with known drug felons if he was not involved with the activity? Since he has a fiance and child, he should have been at home with them instead of hanging out with criminals

      SARAH TO HANG AROUND PEOPLE WHO SELL, USE OR WHO IS INVOLVED IN ANY KIND OF DRUG RELATED ACTIVITY ISN’T A CRIME. YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOUR FAMILY DOES OR WHO THEY HANG AROUND. AND HE LEFT HOME TO GO GET A PACK OF CIGERETTES. IF HE RAN INTO COUPLE OF HIS BUDDIES COOL. MY THING IS THE ONLY PERSON WHO CAN PASS JUDGEMENT IS GOD. IF YOU DON’T KNOW A PERSON NOR THE SITUTION DONT MAKE BIAS COMMENTS. AND I REALLY FEEL YOU OWN THE FAMILY AND APOLGY FOR THE COMMENT YOU MADE. IF PEOPLE WOULD THINK BEFORE THEY SPEAK ALOT OF THINGS WOULD RUN MORE SMOOTHLY. AND STOP PICKING PIECES OUT OF THE NEWS AND USING THEM SO NEGATIVELY. WELL LIL DOC WAS MY LIL COUSIN AND I WILL MISS HIM DEARLY. ALL I CAN SAY IS GOD MAKES NO MISTAKES AND WHAT GOES AROUND COMES RIGHT BACK ROUND. SO DON’T BE TO QUICK TO SPEAK CAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW WHEN DEATH WILL BE KNOCKING AT ONE OF YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS DOOR. JUST THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK…….
