According to The Washington Post, the mother of the killed man says witnesses told her that he was shot seven times while running away from officers. Raleigh Police Chief Cassandra Deck-Brown said the officer was chasing the man on a felony charge and that a gun was found near the man's body.

Deck-Brown called for prayers for those involved.

Two days ago, a 17-year-old was seriously wounded by police gunfire in Salt Lake City when he refused to drop what may have been a broomstick as he advanced towards another person. The shooting prompted a large protest with bottles and rocks thrown a responding officers. A planned demonstration protesting the police's action is set for tonight in the city.
