The family of Jonathan Price, 31, is currently mourning his passing after he was fatally shot by a police officer on Saturday. His family says he tried to help stop a domestic violence incident from happening at a local gas station.
According to CBS News, Lee Merritt, who is representing Price’s family said, “When police arrived, I’m told, he raised his hands and attempted to explain what was going on Police fired tasers at him and when his body convulsed from the electrical current, they ‘perceived a threat’ and shot him to death.”
