Why was Manuel Esteban Paez Teran shot and killed?

Manuel Esteban Paez Teran, 26, was the guy slain in a shooting at Atlanta’s “police city,” and seven other people were charged with criminal trespass and domestic terrorism.

During a “clearing operation” of the suspected autonomous zone on Wednesday near the site of a proposed $90 million Atlanta Public Safety Training Center, the 26-year-old was shot and killed after allegedly firing at a Georgia State Patrol trooper.

Manuel Esteban Paez Teran was shot and killed Wednesday morning, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Teran was inside a tent in the woods and did not comply with verbal commands from law enforcement officers trying to clear the area, the GBI has said.

When Teran shot and injured a state trooper, other law enforcement officers returned fire and killed Teran, the GBI has said.

Injured were Taken to the Hospital

The injured Georgia State Patrol Trooper was taken to a local hospital where he underwent surgery. Georgia’s Department of Public Safety said it will not name the injured patrol trooper, telling the post-millennial it would ‘compromise security against criminal or terroristic acts due to retaliation.’ A handgun and shell casings were located at the scene.

Col. Chris Wright, the commissioner of the Georgia Department of Public Safety, told reporters Wednesday that the injured trooper underwent surgery and was in intensive care. He told state lawmakers during a budget hearing Thursday that the trooper remained in intensive care and was scheduled to undergo another surgery Thursday morning.

The agency said in a news release that it would not release the name of the trooper involved in the shooting “because disclosure would compromise security against criminal or terroristic acts due to retaliation.”

Seven others were arrested and charged 

Seven others were arrested and charged with domestic terrorism and criminal trespass, with additional charges pending. They include:

  • Geoffrey Parsons, age 20, of Maryland
  • Timothy Murphy, age 25, of Maine
  • Spencer Bernard Liberto, age 29, of Pennsylvania
  • Matthew Ernest Macar, age 30, of Pennsylvania
  • Sarah Wasilewski, age 35, of Pennsylvania
  • Christopher Reynolds, age 31, of Ohio
  • Teresa Shen, age 31, of New York

Shen is an alumna of the Manhattan liberal arts institution Barnard College, while Macar graduated with a master’s degree in international affairs from Penn State University in 2016, according to the networking site LinkedIn.

Liberto and Wasilewski appear to be in a relationship based on social media photos .The posts seem to have a long history of left-leaning politics. 

As per the GBI Reports

The GBI said about 25 campsites were located and removed Wednesday and that mortar-style fireworks, edged weapons, pellet rifles, gas masks, and a blow torch were recovered.

GBI Director Mike Register said Wednesday that people are “illegally occupying” the area and are committing acts that endanger the community, including arson and using explosives.

The “clearing operation” was conducted in the same area where a handful of people were arrested last month and also charged with domestic terrorism. Authorities said at the time that firefighters and police officers were attacked with rocks and weapons as they removed barricades blocking entrances to the site.

The 85-acre (35-hectare) property is owned by the city of Atlanta. It is located just outside the city limits in unincorporated DeKalb County, and includes a former state prison farm.
