DeKalb County prosecutors will also investigate the death of another person in police custody who was not shot, and they expect to be asked to look into four more fatal shootings by police, Adora Andy, a DeKalb County district attorney's office spokeswoman, said Monday.
"We will review the documents, and we will determine the appropriate course of action," Andy
Prosecutors could pursue criminal charges against officers if warranted.

said, adding that her
office expects to get another request from the police department to review the shootings since then.Monday's
police materials omitted a fatal police shooting Sept. 2, and Andy
expected to get that later.Andy declined to say why Police Chief Nick Marinelli made the request.
