Al Sharpton, Activists Call For Justice In Fatal Police Shooting Of Lymond Moses

New Castle County, Delaware police shot and killed the 30-year-old on January 13.

The family of Lymond Moses, a man shot and killed by New Castle, Del., police in January, were joined by activists on Saturday (November 13) as they continue to demand to know more about the officers involved in the 30-year-old’s death.

According to CBS Philadelphia, Moses’ family has filed several lawsuits due to the incident, but say they’re not getting closer to justice.

Rev. Al Sharpton also made calls for justice for Moses.

“We demand justice, we demand fairness and we must blow this up to a national image,” he said, according to CBS Philadelphia.

“Say his name, Lymond Moses, say his name, Lymond Moses,” activists chanted at the demonstration.

Family and activists say it has been almost 10 months and they’re still looking for accountability, but aren’t getting far.

“All events like this for me is bittersweet because I have to keep reliving the story, it shouldn’t be this hard to fight,” Nakeisha Nix, Moses’ sister, said.

New Castle County police shot and killed Moses on January 13. Body cam footage shows officers spot his car parked and engine running. He then allegedly attempted to drive away when officers began firing.

“We don’t know if anyone’s been held accountable,” Family’s attorney, Renee Leverette, said. “We don’t know if there was an investigation, we don’t know the names of the officers. They have had no reprimands or anything happen to them as far as we’re aware.”

The group continued their call for the names of the officers involved to be released during the press conference.

“Once you experience these tragedies, it becomes a nightmare and you kind of feel a sense of abandonment so it’s very important that we show support,” Bianca Austin, Taylor’s aunt, said.

The Delaware Attorney General’s Office says it’s investigating the incident but has not said when it is expected to conclude.
