District Attorney Bryant Dunaway announced today (Wednesday, May 31, 2017) that an officer-involved shooting on Highway 111 in White County that took place on April 12, 2017 was justified. Michael Dial engaged officers in a high-speed pursuit through DeKalb and White counties. Dial passed away after being shot at the end of the pursuit. Three officers were injured in the pursuit. Dunaway said today the TBI investigated the shooting at his request. Based upon the evidence gathered, the testimonies of the witnesses, and the videos from the dash cams from the patrol cars, it was also determined by the TBI that the officer-involved shooting was justified and necessary to stop the further threat of deadly violence being presented by Dial. The District Attorney General’s Office has completed its investigation and is closing its file in this case and has requested the TBI to do the same.
