SummaryI have gone over and over this story with the two siblings of Christopher and there was not BB gun pulled on the officer. Christopher had gotten up to put in a movie and had the Wii remote in his hand so that he could start the movie. There was a knock on the door and Christopher said who is it. No one answered him so he opened the door with the Wii remote still in his hand. The female officer already had her gun drew and saw the remote, assumed it was a weapon and shot my nephew in the chest. She never said put down your weapon she just shot. The male officer told the female officer to put her gun away because it was only a remote control. She didn’t. Christopher’s little sister started towards Christopher because he had already fell to the floor so this female officer pointed her gun at my niece who by the way is 13 years old and told her to shut up and stay where she was. I have friends that are cops and I respect the law but this was a murder.
