FULTON OFFICER SLAIN
Terence Avery Green never wanted to be the tough cop. That just wasn’t him.
Green wanted to help his community, and as a young man, he became a Fulton County police officer, a career he had for 22 years. Early Wednesday, he died doing the job he loved, according to his friends. But it wasn’t just a job, and Green wasn’t just any officer.
“He had the gift of being able to understand life,” Carlton Gammage told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Our friend will go down as a hero. Protect and serve, that’s what he was doing. He was protecting and serving.”
Green, 48, was responding to a call in south Fulton with other officers when he was shot in the head. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, but did not survive.
