ATLANTA (AP) --
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that two police officers involved in the 2006 fatal shooting of 92-year-old Kathryn Johnston were fired after an internal investigation found they lied and falsified documents.

The newspaper says it learned on Wednesday that another Atlanta
officer resigned and six more were disciplined as a result of the
probe.

Johnston was killed when a police drug unit tried to execute a
"no-knock" warrant using information provided by an informant. No
drugs were found and officers planted drugs in the home.

As of now, 14 officers have been cited for misconduct involving
the raid, including five who earlier pleaded guilty to federal
charges.
