Stockbridge, GA – In a travesty of justice, a Henry County grand jury decided that a cop who went to the wrong house responding to a 911 call and killed the homeowner, an innocent father of three, will not be charged.
According to CBS 46:
A grand jury review determined that Sergeant Patrick Snook will not face charged and found the shooting to be justified.
William David Powell was shot by officers who thought they were responding to a home on the 600 block of Swan Lake Road in Stockbridge where shots had been fired. The incident happened during the early morning hours of June 9.
Responding to a 911 call in June, Henry County Police arrived at the wrong house and shot the innocent homeowner in the neck. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) is investigating the incident due to the fact that the Henry County police shot a man who had committed no crime and who had no involvement with the initial 911 call.
According to the GBI, a 911 dispatcher received a call reporting gunshots and a woman screaming for help at 11:54 p.m. Unable to obtain an exact address, the 911 operator dispatched three Henry County cops who arrived at the wrong house around 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
Hearing his dogs barking around 1:30 a.m., Powell, 63, grabbed his gun and went outside to check their safety. According to his mother-in-law, Geraldine Huey, 85, Powell had gone outside to investigate a possible intruder.
