“We just want justice. We just want to know what happened, and why did the officer have to shoot him,” Green’s aunt, Juanetta Mack, said. “All he had to do was Tase him or let him go. He knew who he was.”
No one is sure why Green ran from the car, but running from a car is not a crime carrying an immediate death sentence.
Knight said he hopes the passenger in the car comes forward to help them find answers.
A rally was held for Green on Thursday night, with about 50 people attending. At the rally, Knight announced that a community meeting is planned for June 27 with the mayor and police chief to discuss the incident.
Kingsland police asked the GBI to handle the investigation, so they are not giving out any information.
