Delaware Justice Department Investigates Fatal Police-Involved Shooting of Man in Wheelchair

Delaware’s Justice Department is investigating the fatal police-involved shooting of a man in a wheelchair, the Washington Post reports. 

During a call about a possible self-inflicted gunshot wound, Wilmington police encountered a disabled man, who is black, armed with a handgun, police said.

A video shows officers approaching the man with guns drawing, demanding that he drop the weapon.

An officer fired a single gunshot after yelling, “Show me your hands!”

The man was shot several more times after appearing to get up from the chair.

He died at the scene.

“The office will take these steps as quickly as possible in order to provide an account of the incident to the public,” the department said in a statement. “Making a determination about whether a person — including a police officer — should be criminally prosecuted under Delaware law is the responsibility of the Delaware Department of Justice and the department will make that determination following investigation in this case.”
