"The Male Black Is Actually Fleeing." Bang! Bang! Bang! Alameda Sheriff's Murder Again?
A young man was shot and killed Sunday morning by an Alameda Sheriff assisting Oakland Police in a search yesterday morning in Oakland.
Oakland Police say the vehicle and Jacorey Calhoun, 23, the person driving it, matched the description of an armed robber from an incident two weeks ago. Oakland Police claim they initially tried to stop the vehicle. An alleged chase ensued, ending in deep east oakland with the car being abandoned and a house to house search being conducted.
An Alameda Sheriff and their K-9 assisted in the search and just before 6 am they found Jacorey and shot and killed him.
According to the dispatch, Jacorey was fleeing at the time shots were fired. You can hear, "And the male black, he actually fleeing," and then 8 shots.
There in no mention of Jacorey having a gun, or attempting to cause any individual any harm. Just that he was "actually fleeing."
According to Attorney John Burris who is representing the family, Jacorey was unarmed and shot in the head.
Like Oakland Police, Alameda Sheriff's are now equipped with Body Cameras. Anyone have bets on whether that video comes up missing?
