PELHAM — A naked man was fatally shot Friday afternoon while in a wooded area around the 500 block of Liberia Street in Pelham, said Rod Williams, Pelham police chief investigator.
“We have an officer involved shooting,” Williams said. “The GBI (Georgia Bureau of Investigation) is investigating and I have to refer you to them.”
A Pelham officer reported that police received calls about the naked man running though the area before the man was shot.
“He ran from Liberia Street into the woods and back again when an officer shot him,” said Steve Turner, GBI special agent-in-charge.
Because the case remains under investigation, Turner said he could not release the officer’s name or details of the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
