Atlanta cop's wife shoots, kills intruder
By The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The wife of an Atlanta police officer who works in the city's Zone 4 precinct shot and killed a would-be robber early today in the couple's Midtown apartment, police said.

Investigators were not releasing any information regarding the shooting, but said the woman will not be arrested.

Maj. Ted Hall, commander of the Atlanta police Criminal Investigations Division, declined to release any information about the officer or his wife.

One of the officer's partners said he and the young woman had just married two months ago, and he recently bought his wife a firearm for protection.
