SummaryOfficers were called to the home of Matthew's mother and stepfather shortly before midnight for a domestic disturbance and requested by the relative who made the call to send 4-5 officers, as Matthew was about 6'5" and heavyset. Two officers, one male and one female, responded. The female officer was inside the house when the male officer shot Matthew in the chest and then refused to call for paramedics, standing over him in the front yard and screaming at him to not move while his mother was detained in the house by the female officer. November 3rd would have been Matthew's 25th birthday.
