Police shot Isaiah Brown, another black man who called the police for help.
According to reports, Isaiah Brown’s car broke down at about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday at a gas station on Route 3, a few miles from his home in the 12200 block of West Catharpin Road.
A white deputy pulled over and gave Brown a ride to his house. When they arrived he spoke to Brown’s brother, Tazmon Brown, who told police that the deputy told him he was dropping Isaiah Home because his car broke down, and that Isaiah wasn’t in trouble.
Later during that night the police was called to that same house where the deputy dropped Isaiah off, and the same deputy arrived.
Police say they were called over because of a domestic dispute, and Isaiah was the one who made the call. When the same deputy who dropped Isaiah Brown off arrived, Isaiah Brown’s siblings said he opened fire on Isaiah and fired 10 times “for no apparent reason”.
Yolanda Brown, Isaiah Brown’s sister states:
“I’m just still trying to figure out where he felt the threat at, to feel the need to shoot,”
The same deputy then began CPR. Police later confirmed that Isaiah was unarmed.
Isaiah’s family have contacted the NAACP and are seeking a lawyer.
Police say there is bodycam footage of what happened but they won’t be releasing it publicly yet.
It’s reported that Isaiah Brown is in critical condition and in surgery.
