Tragic Death of a 911 Operator in Atlanta, Georgia

by on September 30, 2011 » Add the first comment.

In a terrible irony, a woman whose profession was helping people in emergency situations was killed recently here in Atlanta when she found herself at a crime scene.  Nikita Thomas, a 911 Supervisor for the Atlanta Police Department, was a passenger in a car involved in a robbery, and died of a gunshot wound.  Ms. Thomas was riding in an automobile driven by DeMetris Terrell.  She was shot when robbers approached the car.  Mr. Terrell then crashed the car into a nearby MARTA bus while trying to get away from the scene.  Ms. Thomas’ 13-year-old son was in the back seat, but was not seriously injured.  Ms. Terrell had been with the Atlanta Police Department since 2002.

In situations like this, Krause Golomb & Witcher can help the bereaved family by advising them as to how to file a wrongful death action and by maximizing recovery against all parties at fault.  Crime victims may also be eligible for assistance from the State of Georgia Victims’ Compensation Fund.
