Police are investigating a shooting at a Brooklyn Park McDonald’s. Several 911 calls reported shots fired, and a male was transported to a local hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The shooting is one of several recently in the United States.
Unarmed Black man shot by police in Brooklyn Park McDonald’s parking lot
A video of the shooting of an unarmed Black man by police in Brooklyn Park, New Jersey, has gone viral. Although the video did not reveal whether the police officer was armed or not, it does show that the officers shot and killed the man. The officers involved are now on paid administrative leave, but the family of the deceased man is calling for justice and accountability.
Police have arrested Michael Morgan on attempted murder and criminal possession of weapon charges, and have also arrested an 18-year-old woman in connection with the shooting. The two suspects knew each other, according to the arrest report. The incident took place at about 9 p.m. Saturday night in Brooklyn Park. Police subsequently found spent shell casings in the parking lot and also found the vehicle that was shot at.
During the encounter, police officers shout and then open fire. The police officer who was in the car did not have the right to use excessive force, and they did not have the right to open fire. A 12-second doorbell video shows the incident. When the officers arrive at the scene, Mr. Brooks attempts to leave the scene but accidentally hits several people. Police then shoot Mr. Lipscomb and hit several other people. The officer who was hit by the vehicle was also shot but is on paid administrative leave. The family of Jason Lipscomb, who was killed by police, has spoken out against the police officer’s actions.
The shooting of an unarmed Black man by a team of police officers has raised questions about the police’s use of force. Even though there were no officers injured in the shooting, the death of Ryan LeRoux, a 21-year-old Black man, has cast doubt on the police’s story.
Michael Slager, the white police officer who fatally shot Walter Scott, was cleared of murder. He pleaded guilty to violating Scott’s civil rights and was sentenced to 20 years in prison. His actions led to a lawsuit against the city’s police.
Unarmed Black man killed by police in Silver Spring, Maryland
The killing of an unarmed Black man by police in Silver Spring, Maryland, has prompted a grassroots group to demand an investigation. Robert White, 41, was fatally shot by Montgomery County police officer Anand Badgujar on June 11, 2018. In April 2019, the county’s police department released a five-page report explaining that the officer was justified in shooting White. According to the report, White had asked the officer to leave him alone, walked away, and was shot minutes later.
Despite the video recording of the shooting, police have not released the name of the suspect, but the body of the suspect was recovered at the scene. The four officers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave pending the investigation. The Maryland Attorney General’s office is also investigating the shooting.
The shooting was caught on bodycam video. It shows the driver, a 21-year-old Black man, making a move inside a parked car. The police chief narrated the 28-minute-long video compilation of video footage. The video also shows a recorded phone call between the officer and the driver. The police chief did not express an opinion on whether the shooting was justified. The investigation is ongoing, and the police chief and prosecutors are conducting a formal investigation.
The case has prompted several protests. Among the protesters are students from Morgan State University in Baltimore. They organized a rally in front of Baltimore City Hall and demanded to speak with the Rochester family. They spoke to Rochester’s aunt, Markia Jackson, who disputes the police account. She says her nephew was not intentionally trying to hit the police officers. Police officers claim he had put himself between his car and the officer’s body.
Investigators are still working to determine if the officers involved in the shooting were justified in shooting Walker. Although the officers involved in the shooting provided first aid, the shooting resulted in the death of Walker. The officers involved have since been placed on paid administrative leave. Regardless of the findings of the investigation, the family is demanding accountability for the incident and a return to peace and quiet.
Unarmed Black man killed by police in Tulsa, Oklahoma
There have been several high-profile police shootings in recent years, and the unarmed death of a Black man has been at the center of controversy. In Tulsa, Oklahoma, police killed Terence Crutcher on Sept. 16, 2016, after responding to a 911 call regarding a stalled SUV blocking the road. In Charlotte, North Carolina, a black man, Freddie Gray, was killed by a white officer in an attack fueled by racism and fear.
Police claimed that Michael Pierre was having a mental episode and was attempting to steal a car. They said that he had two knives in his car, and that he was armed. When they approached him, he charged at the officers. The officers deployed a Taser on him, but it did not have an effect. The officers also tried to use pepper spray to disarm him, but they were unsuccessful. Then, they shot him multiple times, killing him.
Police also said that the killing of Michael Dean was justified. He was a father and former bus driver from Detroit. The officer who killed him was Jose Santos, who had been involved in a “brutalizing” incident with another young Black man. The bodycam footage of the incident was not released, but the community demanded that Santos be fired.
The officers claimed that the man had a knife, but the video shows that he was unarmed and had a history of mental illness. The officers’ actions were justified because of the risk of harm to officers.
While the video shows the fatal shooting of a black man by a white officer, the details remain murky. The shooting happened after the police broke into the man’s apartment. The police raid was part of an attempt to arrest him on outstanding warrants, and a bodycam video shows multiple cops leading the raid. One of the officers, 30-year veteran Officer Ricky Anderson, opened the door to their bedroom of Lewis and shot him. The officers also claimed that he had an object in his hand, but investigators were unable to recover it.
This is not the first case involving police killing an unarmed Black man. In fact, it was the first fatal police shooting of an African-American since George Floyd in 1996. In Tulsa, the officer was allegedly on a drug bust when he was killed by a lone black man.

The shooting in Charlotte, North Carolina was only the latest in a long line of black deaths at the hands of police. A similar case occurred in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where a white police officer fatally shot an unarmed black man. The dash cam footage of the incident shows that Crutcher held his hands up when the officers approached him.
Following the shooting, protesters surrounded the officers who left the scene. The officer who shot Mr. Scott was identified as Brentley Vinson, who has been with the department for two years. He is black and has been placed on administrative leave. The footage of the incident was streamed live on Facebook by a woman who claimed to be Michael Scott’s daughter. The video went viral.
