Early Saturday morning, police in Charlotte, North Carolina shot and ki*led 24 year old Jonathan Ferrell, a former Florida A&M football player, after Ferrell attempted to get help following what was described as a “pretty serious accident.”

According to Charlotte television station WSOC, Ferrell knocked on a door in the Northeast Charlotte subdivision of Bradfield Farms in the early morning hours of Saturday September 14. A woman who lives at the address opened the door, believing it was her husband. When she opened the door and saw Ferrell, who she did not know, she quickly closed the door and called 911.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Rodney Monroe said that when police arrived Ferrell, who was unarmed, “immediately charged the three officers, one in particular.” That officer, 27-year-old Randall Kerrick, drew his weapon and fired several shots, striking Ferrell “multiple times.” Ferrell was pronounced dead at the scene.

A short time after the incident police say they found a black car that had apparently crashed in the woods which they believe belonged to Ferrell. According to Chief Monroe

We believe that vehicle belonged to the individual who was shot. It’s quite possible he was seeking blankistance. Based on his accident, it was a pretty serious accident.

Officer Kerrick has been charged with voluntary manslaughter, while the other officers involved have been placed on administrative leave pending the results of an internal affairs investigation. Officer Kerrick turned himself in on Saturday afternoon.
