31 Year old Black man died by Police Shooting last Friday in Louisiana. US police are investigating his death.
The police found Trayford Pellerin in the store’s parking lot with a knife, the statement says. At the point when officials attempted to apprehend him, Mr Pellerin left and officials followed by walking. The police utilized stun guns as they sought after him, but they were ineffective.
The officers shot Mr Pellerin as he tried to enter a convenience store along NW Evangeline Thruway, according to Louisiana State Police.

Mr Pellerin was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. Mr. Pellerin’s passing draws close to the end of a summer that has seen broad fights and shock over racial foul play and police fierceness following the police killings of black people like George Floyd in Minneapolis and Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky.
Civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump called for the officers involved to be fired.
“We refuse to let this case resolve like so many others: quietly and without answers and justice,” Mr Crump, who also represents the families of Mr Floyd and Ms Taylor, said.
“The family, and the people of Lafayette, deserve honesty and accountability from those who are sworn to protect them — the Lafayette police.”
