No Arrests Made in Hammett Case - Dallas-Hiram Patch

Nearly one month since a Paulding man died after Haralson-Paulding Drug Task Force agents shot him during the execution of a search warrant, no arrests have been made as a result of the warrant and related investigation.

Danny Hammett, 60, was shot by agents during the Oct. 17 incident. Hammett—full name Daniel John Thomas Hammett—succumbed to his injuries at Grady Hospital in Atlanta about an hour and a half after authorities executed the narcotics search warrant at a Nebo Road residence in Hiram. Officials said agents shot Hammett after he raised his hands up in an aggressive manner while holding a black shiny object that was pointed toward agents; it was later determined that the object had been a canister of pepper spray.

Recent FBI data shows that Atlanta is in fact the 8th most dangerous city in America.  You only have a more likely chance of being shot or harmed if you live in Flint, Detroit, St. Louis, Oakland, Memphis, Little Rock or Birmingham. Find more about it on Cascade Patch.
