SummaryCulpepper was shot by police who were responding to a call about a disturbance in his apartment. "When police arrived to the 3rd floor unit of the building, they were confronted by an occupant of the apartment, police said. The confrontation led police to fatally shoot the person, police said." I found articles stating that Culpepper's mother was suing the PD for wrongful death, but nothing about the results of any subsequent investigation. Lots of unanswered questions on this one.
