Undercover police shot and killed 92-year-old Kathryn Johnston in her home during a botched drug raid. When officers arrived unannounced at her home and attempted to enter, Johnston fired a shot in self-defense. It went through the screen door but it hit no one. In response, the police opened fire and released 39 bullets, several of which hit Johnston. Afterward, the three Atlanta police officers tried to cover up the fact that the incident was based on an in- accurate report of drug activity in Johnston’s home. One officer planted marijuana in John- ston’s house and cocaine in the evidence file. All three officers were sentenced to prison terms ranging from 5 to 10 years for conspiracy to vi- olate civil rights resulting in death. Two of the officers were further charged with voluntary manslaughter and making false statements.
