Inside The Times, ep. 49: Where was the gun?

September 28, 2019

A man was reportedly waving a gun around near Gainesville’s Northeast Georgia Medical Center. Police arrived and shot him to death. We have a 911 call that makes it unclear whether the man was holding a gun when he was shot, as investigators initially reported.

In this episode, Nate McCullough and Nick Watson talk with Shannon Casas about reporting from the scene Sept. 20. Then we delve into what we know and don’t know about the case and why we report what we do when we do.
