Posted by admin

Cell phone videos have emerged showing a man who was shot dead by police outside a home in Atlanta on Thursday.

Police responded to a call from the homeowner about a disturbance inside his home, where a man was allegedly holding a knife.

The video shows a white man standing outside a front door in the street with his hands raised, according to WSB-TV, which posted it to its Facebook page.

He walks toward a door and pulls a gun out, firing two shots.

He then walks toward the backyard and fires another shot.

A bullet grazes the porch.

Police have not yet released the name of the victim.

The suspect was later identified as 27-year-old Anthony Lamar Smith.

Police said Smith was armed and dangerous, but he was uninvolved in the confrontation.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation also confirmed that the man was armed with a knife, but said it did not have information about the weapon.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Smith, who lived in the neighborhood, was shot in the neck.

He was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

The FBI has taken over the investigation into the shooting.
