A homeless white male in an Atlanta park according to witnesses attacked a plains clothes officer with a 14 inch knife and stabbed the officer in the back. The man was later shot by a uniformed police officer. However there are conflicting reports on where the assailant was shot, one reports says in the leg while others state in the torso. The homeless man has undergone surgery and expected to live as well as the officer that was stabbed in the back.
However, comments on social media have a different take and suggest that the man was fleeing when shot in the back.
