Police say that a security officer shot and killed an armed teenager Friday night in southwest Atlanta.
Officers identified the teen as Kenard Arnold, 17, of Atlanta, who died at the scene after being shot in the back, officials said.
The shooting happened shortly after 9:30 p.m. at the De Lane Court Condominiums at 1867 Myrtle Drive, Atlanta police spokeswoman Ms. Kim Jones said.
Investigators said Mr. Arnold was firing a gun in the direction of another man when a security officer from the area drove up at the location.
The security officer fired his weapon, hitting Mr. Arnold once in the back, Ms. Jones said.
The teen ran for a short distance before collapsing and dying at the parking lot, Ms. Jones said.
It was unclear Saturday if the security guard said anything to the teen before firing his gun. It was also unclear why the teen was shooting at the man who police have not yet been able to identify.
Police are still investigating this shooting and has not said if there will be any charges filed.

Yesterday’s rioting, looting and violence in downtown Vancouver was an example of why business owners need to protect themselves and their businesses at all times. While the acts yesterday were shocking due to their large scale, crime and violence are unfortunately part of our society on a daily basis.
If you have a business you not only need to protect your facility with window bars, gates and commercial alarm systems, but you also need to ensure that you are prepared to record any acts of violence that unfortunately do occur.
Theft, violence and riots do not just take place in Vancouver after hockey games. As we saw during the 2010 G20 in Toronto, violence can quickly sweep a city during any large gathering.
Video surveillance cameras and security cameras catch criminals in the act. Not only will they record every action that takes place, but they can also be used by police to identify and prosecute criminals who damage, vandalize or steal from your business.
Installing a video surveillance system and equipping your business with security cameras is a powerful way to protect your business and identify those who have done your company harm.
As witnessed yesterday during the Vancouver riot, violence and vandalism can start almost anywhere and escalate very quickly. These criminal acts can erupt without warning and there is no way to predict or determine when and where they will occur. This is why you need to be vigilant in protecting your property.
The only way to identify criminals without fail is to capture them on video. Video surveillance footage can be used to show the police, your insurance company and any other authorities who broke your windows, who damaged your store and who robbed you of your property. This footage can also be used to document losses and verify what was taken from your business.
Security camera footage is a powerful tool in court as well. The evidence recorded by the video surveillance system can not only identify criminals, but it can be used to match an individual or a group to a specific crime that took place at a specific date and time. There is no more powerful tool in the apprehension and prosecution of criminals.
SafeTech Alarm Systems is experienced in surveillance camera solutions. We can accurately analyze your particular property and determine the right security camera setup that will work best for your business. Whether you’re looking for IR cameras, dome cameras, box cameras, PTZ cameras, covert cameras or any other video surveillance camera systems, SafeTech Alarm Systems has the experience and skills necessary to configure and install the right security system for you.

We are about to enter the busiest shopping period of the entire year. For the next month retail stores are going to see a tremendous influx in the amount of traffic they receive as customers commence their holiday shopping. While the increase in customers is fantastic it can be a little overwhelming to stores that are unprepared. An increase in traffic can be a drain on your staff and resources and could potentially leave you more vulnerable to shop lifting and inventory loss. Here are a few tips to protect your business from the unfortunate side effects of the holiday shopping rush.
The first thing you can do to protect your business and inventory is install a security camera. As discussed on this blog last week security cameras are a great deterrent to potential theft as the threat of being videotaped makes criminals think twice. Placing a camera in a high traffic area where it can be clearly seen alerts potential shoplifters that they are being recorded. Camera’s can also be placed in store rooms to ensure your employees are not engaging in shoplifting. This is an important step during the holiday rush as many stores take on additional staff that they are unfamiliar with. A security camera will keep everyone honest.
Another step you can take to protect your retail store safe during the holiday shopping rush is hiring a security guard. Security guards are the best deterrent toward shoplifting. To criminals a security guard represents a very real chance of being apprehended while engaging in criminal activity. A uniformed security guard strategically placed at the entrance to a commercial retail store can significantly cut down on the loss of inventory. In addition a retail store can opt to hire a plain clothed security guard to pose as a shopper and get a closer look at potential shoplifters. Plain clothed guards experience tremendous success rates when hired for the holiday season. The larger the retail space the more security guards you will need for the holiday rush. If you already employ a security guard it may be a good idea to hire a second for this incredibly busy month.
If you are interested in installing security cameras, surveillance equipment or security guards to protect your store this holiday season contact us today. We can also provide you with additional tips on keeping your inventory safe this month.
