Detroit Protesters Demand Justice After Video Shows Police Killing of Hakim Littleton

JUL 29, 2020

A newly formed coalition in Detroit is calling for an independent investigation into the fatal police shooting of an African American man named Hakim Littleton on July 10. Newly released footage appears to show Littleton was shot repeatedly while he was face down on the ground with an officer on top of him. One officer shot him in the head at point-blank range. The video appears to show Littleton had first fired at the officers but was soon tackled. The Coalition for Police Transparency and Accountability has accused Detroit’s police chief of mischaracterizing the shooting as an appropriate use of force by initially only releasing footage that backed up the agency’s version of what happened.TOPICS:
