ATLANTA — A former Atlanta police officer is expected to plead guilty to an eight-count indictment in the death of an unarmed teenager. Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard, Jr., said Matthew Johns will enter the plea on Wednesday in Fulton Superior Court before Judge Constance Russell.

On September 16, 2016, a 15-year-old male, who was the passenger in a stolen automobile, exited the vehicle through the passenger door. Howard said he surrendered to police by immediately lying on his stomach on the pavement with his hands up.

Despite the teen’s surrender, Johns, who was a four-year Atlanta police department veteran, ran to the unarmed teenager and kicked him three times in the head while he was laying on the ground. Howard said Johns then pressed his knee to the teen's neck. The victim was rendered unconscious and received cuts, bruises, a neck strain, and a serious concussion.

Johns was later fired by then-Atlanta Police Chief George Turner in 2016.

Howard said Johns will plead guilty to several counts of aggravated assault, false statement, and violation of oath by public officer.
