No more stolen lives! Join the Evans family and larger community at a vigil for O'Shaine Evans on the two month anniversary of the SFPD murder of O'Shaine.
On October 7, 2014 O'Shaine Evans of Oakland, 26, was shot and killed by San Francisco Police Officer David Goff while sitting in a parked car near AT&T Park in San Francisco. Among community concerns regarding the case is the information that Goff's uniform did not properly identify him as a police officer.
Description from Community Journal website:
Goff reportedly suspected that Evans was part of a group of men who’d just burglarized an SUV near AT&T Park. He approached Evans, who was sitting in a parked car, and asked him to show his hands, according to police. Evans allegedly pointed a gun at Goff, who fired into the car, striking Evans twice. Goff is currently on paid leave while the shooting is under review.
Evans’ family doubts that Goff properly identified himself, and police admit that Goff’s uniform was partially covered
