Cops Shoot Black Man Over 30 Times While Sitting In Parking Lot

Cops Shoot Black Man Over 30 Times While Sitting In Parking Lot Cops Shoot Black Man Over 30 Times While Sitting In Parking Lot

(The Independent) - Police have shot and killed a 26-year-old black man in a packed vehicle outside of a Walmart in what his family say was an overly aggressive police response that led to an unnecessary death.

Merritt previously told the Guardian that Yarber took his friends and cousin to the store and was waiting outside.

In the original police release, officers said they believed the driver of a black Mustang found in the parking lot "was a subject wanted for questioning in a recent crime involving a stolen vehicle". The officers got out of their vehicles and told the driver of the Mustang to do the same, the authorities said. The young man was struck at least "two dozen times", according to Merritt. The investigation has revealed Yarber was unarmed and that officers were not in the path of his vehicle when they opened fire.

Samantha Robledo, who shares a 7-year-old daughter with Yarber, used kind words to describe her child's father and said she felt the police have tried to smear his character as a way to justify his killing. When he eventually did climb from the vehicle, he was held at the police station until 11 p.m. for questions, she said. "They are sick people for them to be able to shoot someone down in broad daylight".

"Apparently, we're not supposed to ask when they made that determination" that Yarber was wanted for questioning, the Root's Kirsten West Savali speculated: Was it "when Barstow Police responded to a call about a "suspicious" vehicle parked in a grocery store parking lot on a Thursday morning, or after they pumped that auto full of bullets"?

Lee Merritt, an attorney for the family, said Yarber was not armed but police chose to unload bullets on a auto filled with Black people.

"They saw a auto full of black people sitting in front of a Walmart, and they decided that was suspicious", Lee Merritt, an attorney for the family, told the Guardian.

Southern California cops are accused of using excessive force when they pumped more than 30 bullets into a auto filled with black passengers, killing one and severely wounding another. It's irresponsible. It's risky.

Both shootings shine a harsh light on the way police continue to use aggressive lethal force in black communities.

26-year-old Diante Yarber was identified as the deceased driver.

The sheriff's office said cops believed Yarber matched the description of a suspect wanted for stealing a auto. However, Yarber's aunt says her nephew was driving her son's vehicle at the time and her son was also in the auto, which was never reported stolen. The other victim, a 23-year-old woman, was initially taken into the back of a police vehicle, but was later airlifted to receive medical attention.

Dale Galipo, an attorney representing the wounded female passenger, told the paper she suffered "two gunshot wounds that while no longer life-threatening are life-altering".

"She's still in a state of shock", he added.
