NAACP Discusses UF Shooting Victim
Family members of the UF graduate student who was shot by police say... the support from the community has been motivational.
And they hope that support, combined with that of the NAACP, will lead to charges being dropped in the case.
The case of Kofi Adu-Brempong, who was shot by UPD officers after a standoff March 2nd, has caught the attention of not only the Alachua County's branch of the NAACP... but state officials with NAACP as well.
The president of Alachua County's branch says he's talked to UF president Bernie Machen about creating an independent review board for UPD and a no-retaliation promise for all Correy Village residents... where Adu-Brempong lived... if they come forward with information about the shooting.
