The Complexities Of Korryn Gaines’ Fatal Encounter With Police [EXCLUSIVE AUDIO]

Dismiss

On Monday, 23-year-old Korryn Gaines was shot and killed by police, in front of her five-year-old, at her apartment in Baltimore. The police were there to serve her a warrant for a low-level offense, but when she barricaded herself in her apartment with her child and a shot gun, an hours-long stand-off between her and the police ended in tragedy.

The death of the young woman has caused a lot of scrutiny, especially because there is no footage of the encounter, only recounts from the police. Jeff Johnson discusses what we know and all of the questions that information raises for him in such a complicated case.
