My son was shot and killed by a police officer after he allegedly committed a small burglary and was attempting to escape from police officers at 5:00 a.m. in the morning in a stolen pickup truck. He was alleged to crash into a police car and trying to leave the scene.

I might add there was a female passenger in the cab of the vehicle who's life was also placed in jeopardy. My son was shot in the back and died at the scene.
