John T. Williams Shooting Ruled Not Justified

Read about it at the Seattle Times

Seattle Police Chief John Diaz and the department’s Firearms Review Board have reached a preliminary finding that an officer’s fatal shooting of woodcarver John T. Williams on Aug. 30 was not justified, according to sources familiar with the case. Diaz and the board will make a final determination after the completion of a pending court inquest into the shooting. It is rare for a shooting by an officer to be found unjustified.

Remember that you can donate to the John T. Williams Memorial Fund to help abate the costs of his funeral.
