The father of a Philadelphia man who was shot and killed by police in June 2016 told the Philadelphia Inquirer that his son had been killed for no reason and that police were “doing it wrong.”
Father Percy Dbs told the Inquirers that he was in his driveway when he heard the gunshots and then realized that his father was shot to death.
The father said his son Percy, 37, was unarmed, but the Inquires report noted that a gun was found near his body.
The shooting was captured on a surveillance video, the Inquiring said.
Police initially said the officer had fired his gun at Percy’s car, but later said he had shot himself in the head.
Percy’s death sparked protests in Philadelphia.
A grand jury later cleared police of wrongdoing in the case.
