Two weeks ago in the early hours of the morning, Riverside, California nineteen-year-old Tyisha Miller pulled into a gas station and parked while a friend called her family for help. When the friend returned she found Tyisha unresponsive in a locked car, at which point she called 911 to seek medical help.
Police arrived and said they found Miller in medical distress in a car with a gun in her lap. They smashed open the window whereupon they said she woke up, and waved her gun. The police opened fire, shooting Tyisha at least a dozen times. Tyisha died in a hail of bullets. Police originally said Tyisha shot at them first, a statement they soon retracted. Her family says there are even questions about whether she had a gun. Now the FBI is getting involved.
- Don Bardo, President and CEO of the Urban League of Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
