Amir Locke's Family Attorneys Say He Was 'Doomed to Die' in No-Knock Raid
Attorneys representing the family of Amir Locke, the 22-year-old Black man fatally shot by Minneapolis police early Wednesday morning, said during a Friday morning press conference that Locke was "doomed to die" when officers delivered a no-knock warrant to an apartment unit as he lay asleep on a couch inside.
Attorneys Ben Crump, Jeff Storms and Tony Romanucci addressed reporters alongside Locke's parents during a virtual press conference two days after Locke's death. The method officers used for executing the warrant was swiftly condemned and compared with the no-knock warrant served nearly two years ago in Louisville, Kentucky, which resulted in the death of Breonna Taylor.
