Garrison: No Comment Until Family Sees Report
The Cherokee Sheriff is waiting until Andrew Messina's family has seen the GBI report.
The discussion at a Tuesday meeting between the District Attorney and Sheriff Roger Garrison is staying under wraps until the family of Andrew Messina, the 16-year-old killed by SWAT snipers in May, has seen the report.
The meeting was to discuss a 2,000-page report from the GBI, and to determine if the DA would take any action, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Lt. Jay Baker with the sheriff's office said in a press release, "In regards to the meeting that occurred today between Cherokee County Sheriff Roger Garrison and District Attorney Gary Moss, Sheriff Garrison will be making no further comment until the Messina family receives the GBI report which should occur within 48 hours."
