A young mother dies after police fire eight bullets through her car windshield. A teen, lying face down, is killed when an officer fires two bullets in his back. More than 180 Georgians were fatally shot by police. Nearly half were unarmed or shot in back. Not one officer faced criminal prosecution. A year-long investigation by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Channel 2 Action News exposed flaws in the way the state handles police shootings and led to grand jury reform that Gov. Nathan Deal signed into law in April 2016. Reporters analyzed thousands of pages of records and conducted more than 100 interviews with prosecutors, police, grand jurors, family members and others in the most comprehensive review of police shootings in Georgia history. Details of each case are available in an online database that identifies every fatal police shooting in Georgia since 2010 and continues to be updated when new incidents occur.
