DANVILLE, Calif. (AP) — A lawyer for the family of a homeless Black man fatally shot last month by a San Francisco Bay Area police officer has said that a video serves as evidence that the shooting was unjustified. But the claim is disputed by the police officer’s lawyer. The video recorded by a motorist shows the fatal March 11 shooting of Tyrell Wilson, who had been staying near a public parking lot used by carpoolers in the city of Danville. Wilson died March 17 at a hospital. Police have said he was holding a knife and refused to drop it.
