MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

It may be more than a month before the GBI releases its final report on a fatal SWAT incident in Moultrie.

Friday the GBI told us they're still waiting on ballistics from the standoff that ended in the fatal shooting of 51 year old Walter Wayne Peterson's Seventh Street Southeast home.

Neighbors have expressed concern that police mishandled the situation.

The report will be presented to the District Attorney who will decide if charges will be filed.

A Moultrie Police officer who served on SWAT remains on administrative leave pending the investigation's outcome.

The incident was sparked after Peterson through a rock through the front door of the Best Little Store in Georgia.
