The Atlanta police department told Channel 2 that they are “aware of a 2014 video between an off-duty Atlanta Police Officer and an alleged shoplifter at a Wal-Mart. The City has not been served with a lawsuit and a complaint was not filed with the APD’s Office of Professional Standards."
APD is reviewing the incident.
Carnegay's attorney said there is no point in the video that shows Carnegay reaching toward the officer's gun.
APD says the video doesn’t tell the whole story.
