A father and his son are dead after 56 shots fired by police.
For the family of Kimani Johnson and Matthew Wood Jr. the story doesn’t add up.
“56 shots, that’s overkill,” says Mary Scott Harper, of two of Matthew Wood’s children.
She says the 43-year-old was in fear for his life and was trying to protect his family, when three officers spotted the father with two loaded guns in Green Mount West on Thursday.
“He was trying to protect himself and Kimani wasn’t going to let him go by himself,” said Harper.
“Cops get out of their car and engage these killers,” said Police Commissioner Kevin Davis, during a press conference on Friday.
