Editor's Note: The Black Star News is evaluating this latest killing of a Black man. In this particular case, most of what we know is coming from police sources. Therefore, it is still an open question as to whether they were justified in this shooting---given the routine lying police do when they murder Black people.

The police say Harris was a suspect in an child abuse allegation when they encountered him. We can only wonder if this is really true? Today, the police tell us Harris was a "person of interest" in a 2019 killing. Of course, it is a usual tactic for police to criminalize Blacks to justify their murderous practices against us.

We will continue to monitor this case.
