Fox Nation host and crime expert Nancy Grace join ‘America’s Newsroom’ to weigh in on the case.

A sheriff’s deputy in Atlanta, Georgia, shot and killed a man who broke into his home just before midnight on Saturday, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. 

The Fulton County Sheriff’s deputy had just gotten off of work when he received a notification from his Ring doorbell camera that showed the intruder breaking into his home. 

When the deputy arrived at his home in southern Atlanta, he spotted the intruder walking away with tools and other items. An investigation later revealed that the items had been taken from the deputy’s home and a backdoor had been kicked in. 

The intruder stepped off a gravel road into some woods where he got into an altercation with the deputy, who shot him, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

The alleged intruder started walking down a gravel road and stepped into the woods, at which point the deputy, who was still wearing his police uniform but in his personal car, followed him. 

“While in the woods, the deputy and man had an altercation and during this time, the deputy shot the man,” the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.
