ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The GBI Special Agent leading the investigation of an Albany Police officer who fatally shot a man said that she is sensitive to community concerns about the death.

GBI Investigators have not released a lot of new information about the investigation.

Agents said that their investigators have 60 to 90 days to give their formal report to the Dougherty District Attorney about the shooting.

GBI Special Agent in Charge Kim Baker said that she and her agents are continuing to investigate.

They are still interviewing people and checking records.

On Friday WALB learned that there was a second Albany Police officer on the scene around 5 a.m. on Wednesday.  

Investigators said Albany Police Officer Derrick Williams got into a fight with Ronnie Lee Brown, 55, outside his South Madison home. 

Brown stabbed Williams in the shoulder, and Williams shot Brown, who later died.

Baker said they are not giving out any more information.

"I think without all the facts, as far as the crime lab analysis and everything, it would be very premature for me to be specific about the investigation at this time," said Baker.

Dougherty D.A. Greg Edwards said his office is also doing its own independent investigation of the police shooting. 

 He said he is sensitive to the community's concerns about the fatal shooting, and will make his decision on the investigation as soon as possible.
