Then the officer, 3. A. Zimmer, shot his young friend dead. Zimmer had talked to 16- year-old John Matthew Burnett before. He'd gone to juvenile detention to talk with him, he'd been to his house. "We'd just talk," Zimmer said several days after he killed the boy in the young man's bedroom. "He had some problems, but he was a good boy. He had a lot to offer," Zimmer said. "We had a pretty good friendship, I thought." Young Burnett also had a lot of time on his hands, and he would get depressed, the patrolman said. "And he was mixed up with some friends and they'd drink beer and pop pills." He'd been drinking and popping that night when his stepmother and sister called the police. He was in his room with a gun, they said. Zimmer found the boy lying on his bed and told him to come with him. The boy asked to get his coat, then stepped from the closet with a .22-caliber rifle, Zimmer said. The patrolman drew his pistol. They talked across the pool table, Zimmer said, Burnett talking wild and making it clear he was willing to kill. He said he had nothing to live for. Zimmer summoned help in code on a shoulder radio, but when reinforcements arrived, he told them to stay outside. He wasn't getting through, Zimmer said. "What I said didn't mean anything to him. I knew in my mind what he was going to do." The youth drew a bead. Zimmer fired four times. Zimmer said he'd known cases like this six years earlier, when he was a rookie patrolling Atlanta's "strip" area, a hangout for drug addicts. , "The greatest feeling of success was to run into people I knew on Ihe street and have them say, 'Hey, I'm getting married. I'm all straightened out now,' " Zimmer said. With Burnett there was no lack of love or money, Zimmer said. "The tragedy of the whole thing is he really needed help, and no one could reach him. And there are hundreds just like him," Zimmer said. "Matt was from a good family, a family that loved him. They tried everything they could do. "He was a smart fellow. I'd hoped I would see Matt some day, if he ever straightened out. I wondered what sort of person he would be."
