The DeKalb County police officer indicted last week for the fatal shooting of Anthony Hill has resigned.

Officer Robert Olsen resigned Monday, according to Maj. Stephen Fore with the DeKalb County Police Department. Olsen was indicted last week on charges of felony murder, aggravated assault, violating oath of office and making a false statement in the shooting death of Hill.

Olsen shot Hill on March 9 while responding to a call of a naked man behaving erratically outside an apartment complex. The family of the 27-year-old Hill said he was a U.S. Air Force veteran who struggled with mental health problems.

Olsen's attorney, Don Samuel, said his client will be exonerated when all the evidence is presented at trial.
