The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s autopsy report on Atlanta businesswoman Diane McIver says the entrance wound in her back suggests the bullet may not have passed through anything before it struck and killed her. The autopsy, obtained by our broadcast partner CBS46, also said, “firing of a gun requires several intentional actions.” The medical examiner qualifies McIver’s death as a homicide but specifically denies implication of a judgment of the legality of that homicide. McIver was shot to death by her husband Tex McIver as they rode in a car near Piedmont Park in late September. There was no bullet found in McIver’s body during the autopsy. In fact, no bullet has been found at all in the shooting death.

Atlanta City Councilmember Felicia Moore’s ordinance to install 14 additional security cameras in District 9 passed at the Oct. 17 council meeting. The legislation authorizes payment of $181,359.72 from her District 9 carry forward account to the Atlanta Police Foundation for the installation, maintenance, and operation of security cameras in the city’s right-of-way within District 9. The police foundation started installing pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras and license plate readers (LPRs) throughout the city with plans of having as many as 12,000 devices at various locations as part of their Operation Shield program.
