Relative Of Oscar Grant Shot By Oakland Police
A man shot and wounded by Oakland police over the weekend is a relative of Oscar Grant, the BART passenger killed by a police officer in 2009, and was unarmed when he was shot in the back, his attorney said today.
Tony Jones, 24, was shot once in the back by an Oakland officer on the 2000 block of 62nd Avenue in East Oakland about 11:45 p.m. Sunday after he ran from a van that police had stopped, according to police and Jones' attorney, Waukeen McCoy. Jones is being treated at Highland Hospital in Oakland.
Police have said Jones was armed with a gun, but McCoy said that was not true. Jones client ran because he saw a police car behind him and "thought they were coming up too close to him," McCoy said. [WTF? Ed.]
Police previously said that a gun was found at the scene. The officer who shot Jones has not been identified...
Smooth move Ex-lax.
Life is an IQ test. Don't fight in public, don't attract the attention of the police, don't do shit that gets you arrested, don't run from the cops, don't hang out with people who attract drive-bys. The Grant family and friends failed that test.
