Patrick Humphrey, 33, was shot by police, after his mother called emergency crews to help restrain him. Humphries was known to have mental disorders and to become resistant if there were problems with his medication, friends and family members say.
“His mother called 911 to get help with her son. She did not call for anyone to come and kill her son,” said the Rev. Kenny Glasgow, a pastor in Dothan, and the brother of Rev. Al Sharpton. “Patrick Humphrey did not have to die.”
Officers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave with pay as the Alabama Bureau of Investigation investigates the case, in the small southeast Alabama city.
