GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — A Gwinnett County 911 operator was suspended one day for recording incorrect information in a July incident that escalated into the officer-related shooting deaths of two women.
Phil Raines, a seven-year employee, forfeited a day of paid vacation in April to satisfy the suspension, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has learned.
