1.) Christian Bowman
Jackson County, Miss. police officers shot Christian Bowman, an Army veteran. Bowman died at the scene, after receiving a gunshot wound to the chest.
A deputy went to check out a hotel room at a Ramada Inn after receiving a tip from another investigation that was looking into an unpaid taxi fare at the hotel.
The deputy shot Bowman, alleging that Bowman became “aggressive combative toward” him. Police alleged that the deputy had to call for backup in order to “subdue” Bowman.
Accounts of the incident vary by source. A witness who was supposedly in the room at the same time told Bowman’s mother that the officers “brutally” beat her son, saying that they “pistol whipped” and punched him.
