SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- A 911 recording reveals that before police shot and killed a south Georgia man inside his home, the man's fiancee told a 911 operator he had overturned a refrigerator, broken a TV set and said "he wants to die."
Waycross police released the 911 recording Wednesday. The call prompted officers to go to the home of 45-year-old Jack Lamar Roberson last Friday.
A police report says Roberson was shot after threatening officers with a large meat fork and what appeared to be a knife. Roberson's fiancee and mother have said he was unarmed. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating.
Roberson's fiancee, Alicia Herron, called 911 asking for an ambulance. She said Roberson took "a couple handfuls of pills" and was drinking.
