CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — After a delay, the North Carolina police officer charged with shooting an unarmed man seeking help after a car wreck is scheduled to appear in court for a hearing.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer Randall Kerrick is charged with voluntary manslaughter. The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. It originally was scheduled for Monday. Officials didn't give a reason for the delay.
Investigators say Kerrick fired 12 times and shot Jonathan A. Ferrell 10 times. The 24-year-old Ferrell was a former Florida A&M University football player. His family says he moved to Charlotte about a year ago to be with his fiancee and was working two jobs.
A family attorney and NAACP representatives have questioned whether race played a role in the shooting of the black man by a white officer.
