Body camera video shows students walking past: The incident happened as school was letting out.

The mother of the man who was shot was also there.

The incident occurred in a parking lot of the Liberty Point International Middle School on Feb. 22, 2022.

Richard Ward, 32, was at the school to pick up his younger brother, Sallinger says.

He got out of the car to stretch his legs, then was seen trying to get into a car he thought was his -- but it wasn't.

The Post quotes Killmer as saying, ""Richard Ward's death is a profound injustice — an unarmed, cooperative citizen shot and killed in front of his mother by a Pueblo County sheriff's deputy.

This was nothing short of state-sanctioned murder of a citizen who should not have been even arrested, let alone killed in broad daylight.". »

The allegations are part of a writ of habeas corpus Harrell’s attorney filed last week in Florida’s Third District Court of Appeal.

While habeas corpus filings typically allege that a person is being illegally detained, Harrell’s lawyer has instead argued that it is Harrell’s fetus who is being improperly jailed, as first reported by the Miami Herald. »
