At the request of the Clayton County Police Department, agents from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) are investigating a fatal officer-involved shooting in Clayton County, Georgia. The incident, which occurred on Chippewa Drive at approximately 4:30 p.m., resulted in the death of 18-year-old Hakim Al-Nas.

Preliminary information provided by Clayton County P.D. indicates that officers responded to a 911 call regarding suspicious activity at an abandoned home. Upon arrival, officers found two individuals exiting the home through a rear window, while two others remained inside. As officers approached those exiting, Al-Nas attempted to flee, prompting one officer to discharge their weapon, striking Al-Nas multiple times.

Al-Nas was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead. A handgun was recovered from the scene by investigating agents.
