Another blackman ,53-year-old restaurant owner, David McAtee has been shot by police officer amid #BlackLivesMatter protests in Kentucky, USA.
He was shot when police officers and National Guard soldiers were enforcing a curfew in Louisville, amid a wave of protests calling for justice for George Floyd.
His family said he died trying to protect his niece who also got shot but survived.
According to source, David’s body was found lying in the same spot where he was shot.
Hundreds turned up to mourn and pay tribute to the ‘well-liked’ restaurateur, who regularly gave free meals to police officers during their shifts.
The death of Mr McAtee prompted a massive march to the site where he was killed – near to his well-known restaurant YaYa’s BBQ Shack.
Steve Conrad, the police chief of Louisville, was fired on Monday when the mayor found out that police officers involved in the shooting that killed David McAtee did not activate the body cameras.
“This type of institutional failure will not be tolerated,” Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said. “Accordingly, I have relieved Steve Conrad of his duties.”
