92-year-old woman was shot to death Tuesday after she fired at three narcotics officers trying to serve a warrant at her house, officials said.
Neighbors and relatives said it must have been a case of mistaken identity. Police said they had the right address.
Police said the woman, whose name was not released, was the only person home at the time, and had lived there for about 17 years.
In an interview with Atlanta's WAGA-TV, the informant said he had never been to Johnston's house.
"I'm telling them, I never went to the house," the informant told the station. "The police can't say I ever went to the house."
The informant then said police called him and told him "you need to cover our ass."

Lord knows if they failed to identify themselves
"My aunt was in good health. I'm sure she panicked when they kicked that door down," Dozier said. "There was no reason they had to go in there and shoot her down like a dog."

How much time did she have to grab the gun? Was she strapped the whole time? Does she have her gun ready when Jahova's Witnesses come to the door?
The officers had a legal warrant, "knocked and announced" before they forced open the door and were justified in shooting once fired upon, he said.
