DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- A new video obtained exclusively by 11Alive News shows DeKalb County Police Officer Robert Olsen moments after fatally shooting Anthony Hill.

The video, recorded on a cell phone by a resident of the Chamblee-area apartment complex where the shooting occurred, shows Olsen walking around Hill's body and talking to witnesses. He appears to be the only officer on the scene until two-and-a-half minutes in, when another officer arrives. Olsen appears to explain what happened before sirens can be heard in the distance and two EMTs walk over.

Early in the video, Olsen asks a bystander, "Are you serious?" when the man tries to get too close to Hill's body. Olsen then directs the man to step back. He also asks two witnesses what they saw, then separates them.

Criminal defense attorney and former police officer Philip Holloway said he thinks Olsen was doing the best he could after the shooting.
