The father of 8-year-old Secoriea Turner took part in a press conference in which he said, “They say Black Lives Matter. You killed your own.”
CNN reports that 8-year-old Turner was killed Saturday night while riding with her mother, Charmaine Turner, who had a friend driving. “The driver was attempting to enter a parking lot at 1238 Pryor Road where a group of individuals illegally placed barricades. Someone in the group opened fire on the vehicle,” and Turner was shot. According to the Associated Press, the shooting occurred “near Wendy’s restaurant where Rayshard Brooks was killed by a white police officer on June 12.”
The father, Secoriya Williamson, stood and spoke at the press conference while the girl’s mother sat next to him.
11 Alive reporter Natasha Lance posted video of Williamson speaking: “They say Black Lives Matter. You killed your own. You killed your own this time. Just because of a barrier? They killed my baby because she crossed a barrier and made a u-turn. You killed a child. She didn’t do nothing to nobody.”
