  • photo

Officials say a police officer shot the 34-year-old man because he was driving erratically, rammed into several cars and refused to stop.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the incident unfolded around 6:20 p.m. Wednesday near the Perimeter Mall in suburban Atlanta.

Officials say Almy was driving erratically through a parking lot and eventually rammed several cars on a nearby street.

An officer patrolling the area on foot tried stopping Almy and fired one shot at him.

Almy crashed into a light pole and was taken to the Grady Memorial Hospital where he later died.

The officer who shot Almy is on paid leave, and additional details were not immediately available.
