Athens-Clarke County Police Officer David Kelley approached two men he saw pouring liquor into a cup in a convenience store parking lot in violation of state liquor laws. Kelley observed that one of the men, identified as 22 year old Justin Tramell Scott, was armed with a handgun.
Kelley ordered Scott out of the car and gave him several orders in an attempt to disarm and detain him.
Rather than complying, Scott seemingly reaches for his firearm at one point in the footage. That’s when Kelley fired a round that struck Scott in the face.
