On Sunday, December 19, police shot dead Nakita Williams, 33, in Detroit, Michigan. She allegedly wielded a weapon – later determined to be an airsoft gun – against customers and employees at a Sunoco gas station in the east of the city during an apparent mental health crisis.

Four Detroit cops arrived at the gas station after receiving multiple 911 calls and opened fire on Williams, who succumbed to his injuries on the way to hospital.

Williams left four children in mourning just a week before the Christmas holidays. “They cried all day. I try to make them understand, but this is something you will never get over, ”Eddie Dobbs, the father of his children, told ClickOnDetroit.

According to Detroit Police Chief James White, an independent investigation is underway by Michigan State Police. DPD posted still images from body camera footage, but not the entire video itself.
