Authorities say an Atlanta-area police officer was shot and critically injured Monday night after officers responding to a call about a suspicious person showed up at the wrong house.

DeKalb County Police Chief Cedric Alexander said the officer was shot in the thigh after he and two colleagues entered a home through the back door and identified themselves.

Alexander said the officer, whom he did not identify, had lost a lot of blood and was in surgery at a local hospital.

It was not immediately clear who fired the shots. It was not known if the homeowner also had a firearm.

  1. Kinda dumb to assume which house is the right one. In other news http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2015/09/breaking-illinois-police-officer-shot-and-killed-in-lake-county/

  2. I live in the county north of Dekalb. These bozo's went in the wrong house, killed the dog, shot the unarmed homeowner, and one deputy shot the other deputy. Dekalb is going to have a big lawsuit on their hands very soon.

    Just to put this in perspective this is in the district that elected Cynthia McKinny and then replaced her with the equally smart Hank Johnson (Guam's gonna tip over) for congress.

      Can't imagine anything sane from them, that's for sure. :)

  3. Let's see here,

    Home invasion, malicious destruction of property (the dog), assault with a deadly weapon x2, attempted murder, and from the way the story reads I seriously doubt they announced themselves as police (coming in the back door in a darkened kitchen) so that's lying to investigators, and obstructing an investigation.

    They'll never do a day in prison, and the taxpayers will get the privilege of paying the financial penalty of this lawsuit. The cops involved will also never realize a financial penalty due to their negligence.

    Assumption is the major source of all screw-ups, in this case it's a criminal screw up.

  4. Just heard on the radio that a cop who shot a man was given a 1 year sentence of "home supervision". Ha. That's a tough bid there.

  5. Why am I reading about so many raids going to the wrong house or apartment? Are all the cops nowadays just plain stupid or illiterate? Then nothing happens to these Bozos? No wonder there is hatred and resentment in these places.

    1. In this instance they weren't given a number, but just a description of the house.

    2. All houses are numbered. They go into a house because of a suspicious person? What does that mean exactly? And then shoot their dog? Who goes into a home just on a description and a suspicious person. The only suspicious people in this story are the cops.

  6. All houses are numbered.

    (All houses are given numbers, but the numbers aren't always displayed, as I know well from many years driving a cab, but this is irrelevant in this case, as they weren't given a number)

    "In this instance they weren't given a number, but just a description of the house."

    Alexander said that the officers had not been given a street address, but went to a home matching the description given by a 911 caller who made the initial report.
