Quote:
CNN) -- Jonathan Ferrell, a 24-year-old North Carolina man, suffered a severe late-night car crash. His car slipped into a ravine. He had to kick his way out the back windshield.

He managed to get out of the car and go to a nearby home, where he knocked on the door repeatedly for help.

When police arrived, he approached them -- and one shot him repeatedly, killing him on the spot.

Now the officer is charged with manslaughter. Police say he had no cause to shoot Ferrell.

Monday afternoon, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said in a news release that its investigation determined the officer "fired his weapon 12 times and struck Mr. Ferrell 10 times resulting in his death."

The incident over the weekend has sparked outrage.

"We're going to file the necessary legal actions to ensure that we get the answers that this family deserves, that America deserves," the man's brother, Willie Ferrell, told CNN on Monday. "This was an unwarranted, inhumane shooting."


Mom: 'Jonathan was so loving'
Cops hit bystanders in New York
Unarmed man gunned down by police
Cops wound bystanders near Times Square In an interview with CNN's "New Day," Ferrell's mother, Georgia, described her son as "very, very happy," outgoing, and loving to his friends and family.

He held down two jobs and would call her every morning to talk for about an hour.

"I can't even think of a bad thing he had done," she said.

Ferrell, a former football player for Florida A&M University, was transferring to a school in Charlotte to be with his fiancee.

Willie Ferrell called his brother the "greatest man I ever came in contact with."

"This is an all-American young man who survived a horrific accident. He is crying for help and is showered with bullets," Chris Chestnut, attorney for the Ferrell family, said on "New Day."

Officer first tried stun gun, police say

Police say a homeowner called 911, saying a man was knocking on her door repeatedly.

Officers responded to what they believed was a "breaking and entering" call.

Police say that when they got to the scene, a man matching the caller's description ran toward them.

One of the officers fired his stun gun. When that was "unsuccessful," another officer opened fire, police said.

Later, police learned of the car crash.

"It was a pretty serious accident," Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Rodney Monroe told CNN affiliate WSOC.

Officer free on bond

Police have charged Officer Randall Kerrick with voluntary manslaughter, a felony. He was released Sunday on $50,000 bond.

Kerrick was one of three officers at the scene, but he was the only one to use a gun, firing it several times, police said.

"The evidence revealed that Mr. Ferrell did advance on Officer Kerrick and the investigation showed that the subsequent shooting of Mr. Ferrell was excessive," police said in a statement. "Our investigation has shown that Officer Kerrick did not have a lawful right to discharge his weapon during this encounter."

A charge of voluntary manslaughter means the person used excessive force in self-defense, or carried out the act without intent to kill.

At a news conference, Monroe said, "Our heart(s) go out to the family" and to members of the police force. "This is never something easy."

Kerrick has not made a public statement. However, a police report says that Kerrick reported that Ferrell "assaulted him by unknown means." The report does not elaborate.

The police department said in its Monday afternoon news release that the shooting "has devastated a family as well as caused a great deal of sadness and anxiety in our organization.

"However we must always strive to bring forth all facts and evidence in every case to determine when it is appropriate to place criminal charges against a member of the department," the news released added.

Chestnut praised police for quickly charging the officer. Still, he said, many questions remain.

"Why was this officer even with a badge and having a gun? What are the policies and procedures? What is the training that would allow an officer to act so irrationally, so inhumanely?"

Attorney: Unclear whether race involved

Chestnut said he does not know whether race played any role in the incident. Ferrell was black; Kerrick, white.

"I think this is poor decision-making," Chestnut said at a news conference Monday. "I think this is more a reflection of where we are as a country." Regardless of race, people should be "more sympathetic" to each other, he said.

He added, "Before we assign race to this issue, perhaps we should pause and consider violence."

Ferrell was "an everyday American," Chestnut said.

Civil rights organizers held a news conference about the case Monday.

Kojo Nantambu, president of the NAACP's Charlotte branch, called for Kerrick to be charged with murder.

There's a "tradition in this country to be able to kill innocent black men," he said.

The incident took place the same weekend that New York police wounded two bystanders while trying to shoot an "emotionally disturbed" man near Times Square, authorities said. The man, later identified as 35-year-old Glenn Broadnax, was walking into traffic in front of the Port Authority bus terminal, apparently trying to be hit by cars, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said after the shooting Saturday night.

Broadnax dodged police who tried to take him into custody, then mimicked shooting a gun at officers, prompting two officers to return fire with real bullets, Kelly said. The officers who shot at Broadnax had been on the force for three years and a year and a half, and neither had been involved in a shooting before, Kelly said.

Eventually, another officer brought down the unarmed Broadnax with a Taser, the NYPD said.

Police: All Empire State shooting victims were wounded by officers

It was the second high-profile case in about a year in which NYPD officers have shot bystanders after opening fire in a busy public space. But New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday that the city's 34,000-plus police officers discharged their weapons only 83 times in 2012 -- the lowest number since 1993.

"We're in the middle of an investigation, it's very tragic, our sympathies go out -- thank God they were not fatal shootings," Bloomberg told reporters Monday. A 54-year-old woman had to undergo survery after she was shot in the knee, and a 37-year-old was treated and released after being grazed in the buttocks by a stray police bullet, police said

Broadnax was charged with several misdemeanors, including reckless endangerment, resisting arrest and criminal possession of a controlled substance. He was ordered to undergo a psychiatric exam during a pre-arraignment deposition Sunday, according to court documents.

Sad story. Not much to debate though.

Hopefully, the person who called the cops knows that their assumption of violence led to a chain of events that destroyed multiple lives. The shooter is being charged, rather than the typical paid leave. Looks like things are proceeding as they should be.

Keep your cell phone charged. I don't know that a homeowner hearing banging on their door that late should be expected to trust anyone. The cop might have bypassed some specific procedures when judging or addressing a possible threat; but if he identified as police and ordered "halt," I don't know what Ferrell was doing still running.

Sounds like a terrible episode, and I hope that justice is dealt if warranted to the cop who pulled the trigger. I for one would want to wait for more details, as something doesn't add up.

But why are we still pulling the race-baiting game? Hasn't this garbage been done to death? What does OP hope to prove, that there are still racists among us? No sh^t, and on both sides. Touche, wordsmith.

Stop it already. It's been done to death.

I wonder what the homeowner was thinking. I mean, I can understand not letting the guy into the home or don't trust him totally. But surely if someone's knocking at the door, your choice would be to call 911 and say someone's "breaking and entering."

I mean, just place a 911 call saying someone outside the door apparently need some help, and this would not have ended in tragedy.

It's up to the dispatcher and cops to interpret that; and would have probably been easier to do so if someone else in the area had called indicating they were in an accident. I empathize with the woman's fear and wouldn't try to vilify her actions.

Not really vilifying the woman since I don't know what happened. Just found it odd that the police went in thinking "breaking and entering." Obviously the police are still definitely very much at fault here for how they interpreted the call.

Anyway, overall just a sad story and sad reflection on the amount of fear in today's society.

Why kill a cop if you know he isn't armed? No need to shoot the cop and drive off, just drive off.

Yes, because we should judge policy on the rationality of criminals.

It's certainly tragic, but when cops tell you to freeze, you freeze. They were responding to a breaking and entering in which people are often armed, the cops are gonna be trigger happy.

The cop deserves manslaughter, maybe more, but one can understand how something like this could unfold without it being just an evil racist cop.

Don't blame the person who called the cops. I would call the cops too, if some big guy was banging on my door at 2 am. Blame the cops for watching too many episodes of Cops.
