A lawyer for an 11-year-old boy shot by police in Mississippi says there is “no way” officers could have mistaken the child for an adult.
Carlos Moore and the family are asking for a “full and transparent” probe into what happened.
The child, Aderrien Murry, was shot in the chest inside his home on Saturday after he called 911 for a domestic disturbance, his mother said.
The officer who shot him has been placed on leave.
The boy’s mother, Nakala Murry said after being shot he asked: “‘Why did he shoot me? What did I do?’ and he started crying.”
