Summaryhttp://Cobb County Police responded to investigate claims of a stolen motorcycle in the parking lot of an Extended Stay America Hotel in Cobb County, outside Atlanta. Officers B. Abernathy and D. Mangold (no first names released) "came into contact with" John Allen Massey, 30, in one of the hotel rooms. A physical altercation somehow ensued and cops say Massey produced a handgun. Massey was shot and killed. Info on who fired the weapon or how many shots has not been released "pending investigation." The AJC later also covered the story but had little additional info: http://www.ajc.com/news/news/police-officer-shoots-kills-cobb-county-man/ncW6B/ The story disparages him however, by noting he was a registered sex offender who had violated probation for "not reporting." http://www.mdjonline.com/view/full_story/24485623/article-Probe-continues-in-man-s-shooting-death
