Atlanta Man Calls 911 For Help, Police Shoot Him and His Dog




Decatur, GA– A family is speaking out and demanding justice after the December 29th killing of Kevin Davis, 44, after he called 9-11 for help.
Davis was by all accounts a kind and loving man. He was, in fact, so kind, that he invited a coworker Terrance Hilyard, who was going through a rough time, to stay with him and his girlfriend, April Edwards, in their small apartment.
On the 29th, an argument escalated between Edwards and their house guest. Hilyard then stabbed Edwards with a kitchen knife before fleeing the residence.  Davis called 9-11, and the couple waited in their bedroom for help to arrive.
Shortly after the call, Davis heard gunfire from the front room of his home. He believed Hilyard had returned with a gun. Davis grabbed his gun and went to the front room where he heard the shots.
Tragically, the shots he heard came from an Officer Joseph Pitts, the first to arrive on the scene.  He had just shot and killed Davis’ three-legged dog, Tooter.  Three witnesses all claim the officer never announced his presence or identified himself as a policeman.
Upon entering the room, Davis was shot, twice, by Officer Pitts. The police claim Davis had been ordered to drop his weapon and did not comply. However, neighbors report that they did not hear the officer tell Davis to drop his gun until after hearing the gunshots.
