Shocking moment US cops shoot and kill wheelchair-bound black man {VIDEO}

Shocking moment US cops shoot and kill wheelchair-bound black man

This is the shocking moment a disabled man in a wheelchair was shot dead in the street by Delaware police.

Officers had been responding to a 911 call that someone had attempted to shoot themselves, when they arrived to find Jeremy McDole 'still armed with a handgun.'

Cops opened fire on McDole, who was paralyzed from the waist down after being shot by a friend aged 18, after repeated requests for him to 'drop the gun.'

McDole's mother, Phyllis, has criticized the shooting as 'unjust' during a police news conference.

The incident, which took place in a Wilmington street, Delaware on Wednesday afternoon was caught on camera by stunned witnesses who uploaded it to You Tube.

The 1-minute-and-19-second-long clip opened with an officer, armed with a shotgun, shouting for the wheelchair-bound McDole to 'show his hands.'

A shot is fired just seconds later, before more cops move in shouting at the 28-year-old: 'Show me your hands! Drop the gun! Drop the gun!'

McDole appeared to be bleeding although the footage does not make clear if this was from the officer's first shot or if he had been previously injured in the alleged suicide attempt. His handgun is not easily identifiable in the video.

He is then seen putting his hands into his pockets at which point he in gunned down in a flurry of bullets with around ten shots fired.

McDole slumps over and falls to ground, dead. Cops said a .38-caliber handgun was recovered at the scene.

Police Chief Bobby Cummings said during a news conference that none of the officers involved 'intended to take anyone's life that day.'

He said that police had told him repeatedly to put his gun down but had 'engaged him' after he went to remove the weapon from his waist.

But Mrs McDole disputed the cops' version of events and interrupted the conference to demand answers.

'He was in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the waist down. There's video showing that he didn't pull a weapon, she said.

McDole's sister Letesha Green also criticized the cops for not attempting to use non-lethal force before opening fire.

'Why couldn't you taser this man out of his wheelchair,' she asked, reported NBC Philadelphia. 'Why couldn't you use rubber bullets to get him out of the wheelchair?'

However, Cummings said he had also viewed the video and believed the four officers involved - who have all been placed on administrative duty - acted correctly.

'The officers perceived what was a threat and they responded and they engaged,' he said, adding that only a 'thorough investigation' would reveal if they should have taken a different course of action.

Wilmington Police Department's criminal investigation and professional standards unit is now investigating the incident as is the Delaware Department of Justice's Office of Civil Rights and Public Trust which investigates all police fatal shootings.

The findings will determine whether the officers involved are to be charged.

Witnesses claim that McDole may have been trying to kill himself.

G Double I heed to your message and encourage all Black or Minorities to follow suit. Once confronted by the beast do not argue, do not be belligerent just follow instructions without contempt and protect your own life. The beast is injured and injured beasts are scared, anxious & desperate.

To all my brown brothers out there, fathers, sons, uncles, all of you.....please be careful out there dealing with the law.  Esau knows that the he is running out of time on this Earth and they want to take out as many of our strong brown men as they can.  Our men will always be a threat to them, armed or not so just be careful.

@Robert I support your statement. In this case this dude probably wanted to die due to frustration living in a wheelchair at age 28.He simply could have obeyed the instructions to show his hands. The cops did him a favour as he probably was going to shoot himself, very sad though.

As told to me 30 years ago.. you must respond to the police like a wild lion with a weapon.. you must not agitate or anger these animals.. because like a lion with a weapon it can kill you within seconds.

Keep believing this not hell right here on earth. Cops are the devil's serpents going about to do his duty. Most cops faces faces are filled with hate looking to kill at a blink. Becareful how you engage these serpents.
Comment by G Double on September 27, 2015 at 5:09pm

The best way to avoid a confrontation with the evil cops, is to not give them any reason to engage you. Please CF family, be careful and be safe. The Devil is real and he is instigating all of this evil. The devil is encouraging these crazy cops to kill the innocent so that the by standers looking in can get worked up and turn on them to start anarchy. Dont feed into it. Dont give these creeps an excuse to do black folk harm. The evil cops are just looking for the opportunity. (Romans 12:17) The same way, scared people with guns are looking for an opportunity to use it. 

Not all cops are bad. Many do a wonderful job serving and But the bad ones will cause the good ones to get killed by vigilanties. That has already started....

Thats just my 2 Cents.....
