Sixteen Year Old Male Shot Update

Update 5/18/2017


Police Detectives actively working the shooting investigation that occurred at 204 Alpine Street on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, have uncovered additional factors surrounding the incident.  Further investigation has revealed, the shooting happened as the result of possible drug activity or a narcotics transaction.  Detectives have received very little cooperation from members who reside in the home and were at the residence the time the crime took place.  

Additionally, further inquiry from a local hotel has produced a video of a vehicle of interest in this case.  The video of the car is currently being released because it was very near the residence just before and after when the shooting happened.


Anyone having information about the incident or the vehicle in the video is urged to call 911 or the Police Department at 770-704-4883.

Officer Saves a Life



On May 14th, 2017 around 7 PM, City of Canton Police Officers were notified of a male, possibly in the Canton area, that was suicidal and armed. A look out was given to Officers with the male’s physical description along with a description of his vehicle. 

Officer Jonathan Nelson (City of Canton Police Department), found the male inside vehicle in the Canton Market Place shopping center. Officer Nelson looked inside the vehicle and observed the male actively trying to hang himself with a makeshift noose. The male appeared to be blue in color and not breathing. Officer Nelson attempted to get the male to stop through verbal commands but the male was not responding. Officer Nelson then made several attempts to break the driver side window and was eventually successful. Officer Nelson quickly loosened the makeshift noose from the male’s neck and was able to get the male to breathe but could not release the noose completely. 

Officer Nelson was able to calm the individual down and take the makeshift noose from around his neck. The suicidal male was then transported to Northside Cherokee Hospital for further treatment and evaluation.
