ATLANTA - The former Atlanta police officer accused of murder in a Midtown shooting turned himself in Saturday afternoon.
The Fulton County District Attorney's Office announced Friday evening that an arrest warrant was issued for former officer James Burns.
Burns fatally shot Devaris Rogers, a man suspected of breaking into a car more than two weeks ago in Midtown.
Burns is charged with felony murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and two counts of violation of oath in the death.
The Fulton County Sheriff's Office tells Channel 2 Action News there is no bond for Burns.
This all started when an off-duty officer working security at an apartment complex called in for backup when he spotted a man breaking into a car.
When Burns arrived on scene, he said he spotted Rogers.
