Hill's family says the 27-year-old is an Air Force veteran and served in Afghanistan. They said he's had medical issues ever since he returned from the war.

The GBI has stepped in to investigate the deadly police shooting. Hill's family has hired an Atlanta attorney.

This was the second deadly shooting by a DeKalb County Police officer in recent months.

In December, Kevin Davis was shot and killed by Dekalb Police. The department says Davis refused to put down his gun.

The GBI is also investigating that shooting.
