Calls for Help Answered With Fatal Shots

This year Blacks needed to be extra careful when they had car trouble and sought help from strangers. Jonathan A. Ferrell, 24, a former Florida A&M University football player, was unarmed when he was shot to death in September by police officer Randall Kerrick after a car crash in North Carolina. Three months later, Renisha McBride, 19, was fatally shot in Detroit by Theodore Wafer after she knocked on Wafer’s door to seek help after she crashed her car.
