MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The NAACP Memphis branch released a statement regarding the investigation into the MPD officer-involved shooting.
Martavious Banks, 25, is still in critical condition after being shot by an Memphis police officer on Sept. 17.
The three officers, who have not yet been identified, were all placed on administrative leave pending the investigation.
- Son of MPA president wasn't the MPD officer who shot Martavious Banks, officials say
- 6 people charged for blocking road during protest in South Memphis
- Family: Criminal history of Martavious Banks doesn't justify MPD officer shooting him
- Body cameras didn't capture MPD officer shooting man; 3 officers relieved of duty
Below is the statement given by NAACP President Deidre Malone:
We do know that one of the officers involved – not the primary officer who shot Banks – is the son of Memphis Police Association President Michael Williams.
The investigation is looking into violations of MPD policies, particularly the use of cameras.
