A Macon, Georgia, police officer shot and killed Sammie "Junebug" Davis Jr. during a struggle in a Kroger parking lot. Police at first said the officer was trying to serve a warrant on Davis, but they later admitted there was no warrant. They then claimed the officer was answering a call. But they've refused to answer questions about the conflicting stories they've offered or about exactly what happened in the parking lot.
