Emeryville Home Depot Shut Down for Yuvette Henderson
Tue Feb 24 2015 (Updated 02/25/15)
Civil Disobedience Action Pushes for Answers in Police Killing of Yuvette Henderson
Yuvette Henderson, mother of two, was gunned down by Emeryville police officers Michelle Shepard and Warren Williams on February 3 within minutes of an incident at the Emeryville Home Depot about a block away. Details of exactly what happened at the Home Depot remain unclear. The current, and still incomplete, police narrative of the killing that followed conflicts with initial police statements as well as eyewitness accounts. Disturbingly, officer Williams used an AR-15 military assault weapon to gun down Yuvette and supposedly did not turn on his PDRD body camera until after the shooting. Community members have raised questions and demanded the release of multiple related surveillance videos, yet police and the local businesses involved refuse to come clean or release the video. Concerned that Yuvette was killed because she was a Black woman, and that police agencies are involved in a massive cover-up, the Anti Police-Terror Project (APTP) held a rally at Emeryville police department headquarters on February 21 before marching to the Home Depot, where activists used their bodies, chains and lockboxes to block three main doors, thereby shutting the store down for most of the day.
