Albany Teen Indicted in Officer Shooting

ALBANY, Ga. (AP) - A teenager accused of shooting an Albany police officer has been indicted on aggravated assault and drug charges.

18-year-old Johnny Hill Jr. of Albany is charged in the June 17 shooting of Officer Timothy Harvey.

Prosecutors said Hill was also indicted on two counts of participating in a street gang.

Harvey was shot when he attempted to question a suspicious male on a bicycle. The officer has since recovered and returned to duty last week.

A Dougherty County prosecutor said the case against Hill could go to trial in January.
