DEMONSTRATORS marched through Wilmington in the US state of Delaware at the weekend calling for an investigation into the police killing of a disabled black man to be reopened.
The march was led by Keandra McDole, whose wheelchair-bound brother Jeremy was shot in disputed circumstances on September 23 2015. Marchers cried: “Justice for Jeremy McDole!” and “Shotgun Joe has to go,” a reference to police officer Joseph Dellose, who was the first to fire at him.
A paraplegic, McDole was said by police to have been carrying a gun, though his family dispute this. An investigation by Delaware’s then attorney-general into his death found that officer Mr Dellose had shot at him as he reached towards his waist after being told to put his hands up, accusing Mr Dellose of “extraordinarily poor police work.” It said other police officers opened fire on McDole because they heard Mr Dellose’s shot and were not certain where the gunfire was coming from. No officer was charged over the incident.
