Possibly another death from swatting

When Mark Parkinson, who lives in the house, finally heard the commotion outside, he got out of bed to see what was going on.

He was armed, looking through a window, and that’s when Deputy John Chandler fired a fatal shot.

The victim’s wife, Diana Parkinson, said her husband would have never had the gun out if he had known there were police officers on the property. She said they didn’t know who was there.

“By the time I got into the kitchen, which probably was 30 seconds after he got up, he was already on the floor and had been shot,” Diana Parkinson said.

GBI agents are working to determine whether the 911 call was fake. Right now, they said, they have no evidence to validate an emergency.
