No charges yet for driver in Atlanta officer-involved shooting

- As of Monday afternoon, authorities say, no charges have been filed against a North Carolina man who was shot by an off-duty officer near the Georgia Dome over the weekend when he disregarded the cop's traffic instructions.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says the officer was directing traffic on Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard Saturday night when the driver of a white Ford F-350 failed to stop.

Investigators say the driver, 46-year-old Noel Hall, disregarded the officer’s direction, heading straight towards him. That’s when the officer fired at Hall, striking him.

Hall continued down the road before he came to a stop.

Medics rushed him to Grady Memorial Hospital in stable condition. 

No officers were injured in the incident.
