Mayor, NAACP Confident in Police Shooting Investigation

Friday, 23 Jan 2015 08:27 PM

New Jersey officials, the state NAACP and local religious leaders say they have confidence in an investigation into a fatal police shooting at a traffic stop that was captured by a patrol car camera.

Bridgeton Mayor Albert Kelly, police Chief Mark Ott, state NAACP President Richard Smith and community leaders stress peace while the investigation goes on. They say they don't want the investigation turned over to the state attorney general, as activists have requested.

The video of the Dec. 30 killing of Jerame Reid was released this week.

Reid was warned repeatedly not to move but stepped out of the car with his hands raised. Two officers opened fire, killing him.

Reid was black. One officer is black, the other white.

The death capped a year in which the killings of other black men by police officers prompted sometimes violent protests.
