An aspiring country music singer and rapper has been charged with attempted murder after shooting a homeless man who she says threatened her life during a late night row in Nashville. 

Katie Layne Quackenbush, 26, shot Gerald Melton, 54, twice during an altercation outside her Porsche SUV in Nashville's Music Row on August 26.

It was 3am and Melton, who was trying to sleep, complained to Katie and a friend who was with her that her music was too loud, according to police.

The pair had been at a nightclub and she was bringing her friend back to her own car when the argument ensued. 

Police say that after shouting at one another, Melton retreated but Quackenbush got out of her $60,000 Porsche Cayenne and fired two shots at him, wounding him in the stomach.

Quackenbush, an aspiring country singer and rapper and mother-of-one, fled the scene afterwards to go and have breakfast at a restaurant with her friend. 

Katie Layne Quackenbusg, 26, (above) was charged with attempted murder for shooting Gerald Melton (below in a previous mugshot), a homeless man, twice on August 26

Melton was taken to the hospital where he remains. His condition is not known. 

The next day, after police issued an appeal to find 'two blonde women' suspected of shooting him, she handed herself in to police. Her version of events differ from the one given by police. 

According to her father Jesse, a personal injury and criminal defense attorney in Amarillo, Texas, Quackenbush feared for her life when she fired her gun. 

He said she and her friend had been at a nightclub and that his daughter was taking her friend back to her car when they saw Melton accosting another group of girls. 

As they pulled up, they noticed this homeless guy out ahead.
'He was yelling and screaming at another group of girls which looked like sorority girls from the local university. 

'It seemed he was getting into a physical altercation with one of them,' Mr. Quackenbush told DailyMail.com on Tuesday. 

He claimed Melton then approached his daughter's car and started 'screaming and banging on the windows'. 

He called her a 'sand n***er w**re' and threatened to kill her if she did not turn her music down, he added. 

The 26-year-old is an aspiring singer and rapper in Nashville, Tennessee. She is seen above in images from her music videos and YouTube channels.

On August 26, Quackenbush and her friend were in her Porsche SUV near Nashville's famous Music Row (above) when she shot homeless man Gerald Melton twice

Katie's father said she feared for her life when she fired her gun. She is pictured with her five-year-old son Ripp

Frightened for her life, he said his daughter hopped out of the vehicle and fired two 'warning shots' from her gun but did not intend to strike the man. 

'She said "I have a gun" twice. He came at her, she fired what she thought was a warning shot and fired a second one when he kept coming at her. 

'She ran back to the car and left with her friend,' her father said.

The pair then went to a restaurant to have breakfast and Quackenbush 'kept her composure probably better than any police officer would have,' her father said. 

When they returned to the scene so that her friend could finally retrieve her car, it was swarming with police and had been taped off. 

'The next day they're hearing in the news that police are looking for two blonde females who shot a homeless man,' Mr. Quackenbush continued. 

The woman's father said she was just like any other struggling musician in Nashville and that she acted in self-defense. She is pictured in a rap video on her YouTube channel

Upon his advice, his daughter contacted police and handed in the gun which, her father said, she has for self-protection. 

Quackenbush moved to Nashville from her native Texas to 'like a lot of people', pursue a career in country music, her father said. 

She has a five-year-old son who, despite 'struggling to make a living', she puts through private school.

Quackenbush was arrested for assault in 2013 after a 'squabble' with her mother. Her mugshot from that arrest it shown

In 2013, Quackenbush was arrested for assault causing bodily injury after a 'squabble' with her mother. The charges were later dropped. 

Her father said police in Nashville are using her as a 'poster child' for the city's ongoing homeless problems. 

He believes she is being unfairly prosecuted and that authorities are intentionally ignoring any threat Melton may have posed. 

'The guy's obviously schizophrenic in the opinion of my daughter and her friend and other people,' Mr. Quackenbush said. 

Melton's criminal record in Nashville dates back to 2014 and includes several arrests for criminal trespassing and failing to appear in court. 

Quackenbush was released from jail on a $25,000 bond and is awaiting her next court appearance.
She goes by the artist name Katie Layne and previously uploaded her collection of rap and country music songs to YouTube. 


Porsche Driving Wannabe Country Singer Shot Homeless Man

Katie Layne Quackenbush moved to Nashville to become a musician, but cops say she put two bullets in man’s stomach after an argument over her luxury car.

A Tennessee woman arrested Monday for allegedly shooting a homeless man after he asked her to move her Porsche from his sleeping area has a violent past.

Katie Layne Quackenbush is accused of shooting Gerald Melton on Aug. 26 after the two argued over where she parked in Nashville. Melton had been sleeping on a sidewalk when he “became disturbed by exhaust fumes and loud music” from Quackenbush’s car at 3 a.m., according to Nashville police. The two allegedly began arguing when Melton asked that the vehicle be moved.
Melton left the area and did not block Quackenbush from leaving, according to the police affidavit. The two began arguing again when he returned to the spot where he had been trying to sleep, police said. This time Quackenbush allegedly got out of her car with a gun and fired two shots before getting back in her car and leaving.

Melton, 54, remains hospitalized after being shot twice in the abdomen.

This isn’t Quackenbush’s first run-in with the law. Quackenbush was arrested on misdemeanor domestic violence-related assault charges in Texas in 2013 that were later dismissed. Quackenbush was arrested last December for striking a woman in the head with a drinking glass and charged with misdemeanor assault, according to court documents.

Quackenbush’s father, Jesse Quackenbush told The Daily Beast that she was acting in self defense after Melton “accosted” his daughter and her friend and threatened to kill them.

“What you have here is a 26-year old woman whose life is basically ruined on an international basis because of knee jerk and hillbilly cops in Nashville that rush to judgement before they even complete their investigation,” he said.

Quackenbush had been out with a friend in downtown Nashville, who was an “eyewitness to this event,” Jesse said. Since the friend’s car was parked about six blocks away from the club they were at, Quackenbush offered to drop the friend off at her car.

They continued to talk in Quackenbush’s car when Melton began “screaming and yelling” explicit threats “at the top of his lungs” and threatened to kill the two women, Jesse said. Melton then allegedly walked away to begin yelling at another group of girls nearby.

After Melton walked away, Jesse said his daughter took out her gun to escort the friend to her car. When Quackenbush walked around her car Melton allegedly began to “accost” her again. She then told Melton twice that she had a gun and to stay away.

“He kept coming at her and increasing the volume of his voice and she thought what she thought was a warning shot would make him run away,” Jesse said. “She purposefully aimed away from him but unfortunately she hit him. And he kept coming so she shot again, again a warning shot, down at a downward trajectory and thinking that would scare him away.”

Jesse said his daughter “closed her eyes when she shot both times.”

Melton allegedly continued to come at the Quackenbush so she got back inside her car and drove away. He said his daughter turned herself in and has been cooperating with police since the incident.
“She was merely trying to defend herself,” Jesse said. “She wasn’t trying to hurt anyone to begin with, especially not trying to kill someone.”

Jesse said Quackenbush is the single mother of a 5-year old son and moved to Nashville to launch her career as a musician.


Surveillance video where homeless man was shot shows potential witnesses

Posted: Sep 12, 2017 5:43 PM CST Updated: Sep 12, 2017 5:55 PM CST  
Reported by Jeremy Finley

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - The News 4 I-Team obtained exclusive surveillance video of the Music Row neighborhood where a homeless man was shot, and it reveals many people in the area who could be potential witnesses.

The video, recorded on Aug. 26 starting at 3 a.m., shows Chet Atkins Place and its cross street, 19th Avenue South.

Metro police report at 901 19th Avenue South, on that same date and time, 26-year-old Katie Quackenbush shot 54-year-old Gerald Melton twice in the stomach.

Police said Quackenbush, charged with attempted murder, got into an argument with Melton.
The surveillance video shows at roughly 3:19 a.m., a fire truck rushes to the scene followed by several Metro police cruisers.

But the video shows in the minutes before police arrive, two people can be seen walking directly from the location of the shooting, and another man can be seen walking down Chet Atkins Place.

Several cars also drive in that area at the same time, all indicating there could be several witnesses to corroborate either Quackenbush or Melton’s versions of what happened.

Metro police confirm that another witness working security in that area alerted investigators to the shooting.

The I-Team has also obtained video of Melton, recorded in December 2016. In the video, Melton is seen playing a guitar and singing.

The video was made by Music Row veteran Sharon Corbitt-House, who started a Youcaring page to help Melton.

“He lived in the parking lot behind our building for about a year,” Corbitt-House said. “I had no clue that he was as talented as he was.”

That Youcaring page did raise more than $2,000 that Corbitt-House said helped Melton to move into temporary housing on Murfreesboro Road. But not long after, he was back living on the streets of Music Row.

“Did you ever find him to be volatile? Did you ever find him to be a person that would get angry quickly?” the I-Team asked.

“I never experienced it,” Corbitt-House said. “I had a heard a couple of people had had incidents with him where he raised his voice and had gotten angered.”

Tourist selfie taken in Los Angeles sparks debate about homelessness and empathy

A picture of a young woman posing in front of a mural on Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, has gone viral, not only for what it does show, but also for what it doesn't — empathy

The image that is getting Internet users so riled up was taken by estate agent and Silver Lake resident Rich Michalowski, who posted it to his Facebook page on Sunday with the caption, "Really?"
It shows the woman getting her photo taken by a companion, with her hands outstretched and a beaming smile on her face, in front of the mural by artist and author Dallas Clayton, which invites people to "stand here and think about someone you love." Also in the shot, lying at her feet, is a homeless man.
Posted by Rich Michalowski on Sunday, 6 March 2016
Whoever she was thinking about it wasn't the man on the ground behind her.

"The photographer was directing the woman on where to stand, how to pose and suggested she take off her jacket," Michalowski told website TakePart. "At one point the photographer directed her to move closer to the homeless man so she could center the photo. They were still at it when I drove away. [sic]"

Most people have condemned the two women for taking the photo.

"There's a certain amount of irony involved in posing for a warm fuzzy picture while trying not to stand on a homeless man's head," wrote Patrick Morris on Facebook.

However some have defended the women. "When there is a homeless man in front of the grocery store camped out asking you for money… most people still walk right by and do their shopping… so I am not going to be pissed at these girls for wanting an instagram photo," wrote Crystal White-VanCleemput.

The artist Dallas Clayton told TakePart that he "felt sorry for everyone involved" when he saw the picture.

"It's unfortunate that any person would have to sleep on the street. It's unfortunate that someone could be so disconnected that they would step over someone to take a photograph and also it's unfortunate that the spectacle of documenting this is easier to discuss and comment on than the root issue is to solve," he wrote in an email to the website.

Clayton also made an important point about how society as a whole treats the homeless. "I think a lot of people want to judge others when they are in situations like this — make comments like 'this is what's wrong with the world,' but I don't assume the girls in the photo are cruel or terrible people who hate the homeless or think themselves better," he wrote. "I just imagine there to be a disconnect, likely a systemic disconnect that allows someone to move through the day like that."

This photo many have been taken in L.A. but homelessness is an issue across the world. Think about how many homeless people you see on the streets of every U.K. city. Will Michalowski's image make you think twice about ignoring them?

"If it takes this photograph for you to realise [sic] that [a disparity between the haves and the have nots exists] I don't imagine you've been paying attention to society as a whole for the past fifty or sixty years," Clayton wrote on his Facebook page. He also announced that he would be giving 100 percent of the proceeds from a new range of illustrations to an organisation that helps the homeless.

3 teens held in Albuquerque homeless killings [VIDEO/Pics] - www.Houseless.org

Jul. 21, 2014 12:19 AM ET

(AP) — Three teenagers ganged up on two homeless men and fatally beat them before leaving their bodies nearly unrecognizable, Albuquerque police said Sunday.

Alex Rios, 18, and two boys, ages 16 and 15, are being held in Bernalillo County detention facilities a day after allegedly killing the victims in an open field, police spokesman Simon Drobik said.

A criminal complaint filed by police says Rios has been charged with two counts each of murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree felony and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He also faces three counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and one count each of tampering with evidence and robbery.

The younger boys will likely be charged with murder as adults, Drobik said. The Associated Press is withholding their names because of their age.

"I personally, after reading that complaint, was sick to my stomach because of the nature of the violence and the age of the offenders," Drobik said.

Officers responded Saturday around 8 a.m. to a 911 call reporting two bodies in a field. They found one victim lying on a mattress and another lying on the ground. Jerome Eskeets, a third victim who said he was able to flee, was hospitalized for his injuries.

Eskeets told police that he recognized one of the "kids" hitting and kicking him as someone who lived in a house nearby. Police went to the home and found the three suspects, according to the complaint. The homeowner identified the 15 and 16-year-old as his children and Rios as a friend who had spent the night.
Investigators say in the complaint that blood on the waist band of 15-year-old's shorts triggered further investigating and interviews with all three.
Rios told investigators he acted as a lookout while the other boys attacked both men with bricks, sticks and a metal fence pole. He said the victims were struck all over, including in the face and chest.

The younger suspects, however, told police that Rios also took part in the attacks. Both boys said they wanted to look for someone to beat up and possibly rob.

Both describe how all three covered their faces with black T-shirts before walking over to the victims, who were lying down. Then the trio allegedly used various objects to attack the men, including cinder blocks. According to the 15-year-old, they all took turns picking up cinder blocks over their heads and smashing them into the men's faces more than 10 times.

The suspects said after the attack, they took one victim's driver's license and debit card. The license was found in the teens' home, police said.

According to the 15-year-old, all three have previously attacked homeless people around Albuquerque. Police are now going to look into open cases involving attacks on transients to see if they are related, Drobik said.

Meanwhile, investigators have not yet officially confirmed the identities of the two victims. Their transient background and the severity of their injuries have made identifying them somewhat difficult, Drobik said.
The department is asking anyone in the homeless community with information to get in touch with them. Drobik said any transients uncomfortable approaching police can also contact them through any social service agency.

"Just please come forward," Drobik said.

Just a note:
Social services organizations share information willingly with law enforcement kinda as friends and keep this hidden from those struggling. In their mind, they think they are helping, but in reality, they are only looking after their own business of "HELP". Not all will do this, but more and more take part i such free willy sharing without the "Rule of Law" to safeguard the privacy of those who are struggling.

"The HOUSELESS" are being targeted, but who can they go to? All too many 501 (c) (3) "HELP" business are in it for just that, business.

The "Protect and Serve" agencies are no longer for all citizens as it is being proven in the daily struggles of citizens in the United States. If a person fails to have funds and/or money, then right away police in the US either look to criminalize those who are "The Houseless" or run them out of town by any and all means possible. Yes, many of these so called "Protect and Serve" employees are followers of some sort of faith, but they show by their evil they don't believe even the version of faith they follow.

Most religious organizations WILL look the other way and even take steps to rid you of their neighborhoods, instead of being righteous in accordance with Scripture, not versions thereof.

So for most who fall into becoming "The Houseless", it quite more scary out there than most can even imagine. So, unplug yourself from your fantasy world and get involved in real time with those about you.

Please don't hate them, nor disregard them, for all are human and worth spending time to understand: "how"; "why", "when" ... .

Three teens admit beating two homeless men to death with bricks in sickening attack after attacking DOZENS of other transients

  • The three teens admitted to bashing the homeless men's faces in with cinder blocks and metal fence poles, police said

  • Hardened police on the job for decades were disturbed by the grisly crimes

  • One of the teens also told police they had beaten about 50 other transients in the past year

Three teenagers admitted beating two homeless men to death with bricks, cinder blocks and other hard objects so badly that the crime scene disturbed even veteran cops, authorities said.

Alex Rios, 18, Nathaniel Carrillo, 16 and Gilbert Tafoya, 15, are being held in Bernalillo County detention facilities after allegedly killing the helpless victims Saturday in an open field, police said.

'I personally, after reading that complaint, was sick to my stomach because of the nature of the violence and the age of the offenders,' police spokesperson Simon Drobik said.

The accused: Alex Rios, 18 - www.Houseless.org
The accused: Alex Rios, 18 has been charged with murder in the twin killings

The accused: Nathaniel Carrillo, 16, has been charged with murder in the twin killings

Admitted killer: Police say Gilbert Tafoya admitted to the killings, and also to beating about 50 other transients in the city over the past year

The names of the two men savagely beaten to death have not been released. But a third man, Jerome Eskeets, escaped the brutal beatdown and lived to tell his story.

Eskeets told police the teens covered their faces with t-shirts and beat him and the two other victims with bricks, a metal fence pole and sticks.

All three victims suffered injuries to their entire bodies, including their faces - which were left unrecognizable, police said.

Where it happened: The empty Albuquerque lot where the three teens beat the homeless men to death

Officers responded Saturday around 8 a.m. to a 911 call reporting two bodies in a field. They found one victim lying on a mattress and another lying on the ground. Eskeets was hospitalized for his injuries.

Eskeets told police that he recognized one of the 'kids' hitting and kicking him as someone who lived in a nearby house. 

Police soon found the three suspects at the home, according to the complaint, and quickly noticed blood in the waistband of Tafoya's shorts.

Both Tafoya and Carrillo are brothers, the homeowner told police. Rios was identified as a friend who had slept over the previous night.

Investigators soon interviewed all three boys and learned the awful truth of what happened.

Rios told investigators he acted as a lookout while the other boys callously attacked the homeless, beating them to a bloody pulp.

The younger suspects, however, told police that Rios also took part in the attacks. Both boys said they wanted to look for someone to beat up and possibly rob.

Tafoya said they approached the suspect with their faces covered by t-shirts. They then raised the cinder blocks up over their heads and smashed the homeless men in the face at least 10 times each with the blocks, authorities said.

Carrillo and Tafoya admitted they took one victim's driver's license and debit card. The license was found in the teens' home, police said.

Tafoya also admitted to police they have previously attacked about 50 other homeless people around the city in the past year, KOB reported.
"There are often homeless people around here; they come and sleep in the shade,' Matthew Sierra, told the Albuquerque Journal. 'It hurt business for a little while. But there hasn’t been anything like this in the three years we’ve been here."

"Who failed these kids? How did they get to this point?" Drobik asked KRQE. "I mean, I was sick to my stomach. Homicide had a hard time dealing with this. They were there for 18 hours just putting it together. It’s just unbelievable."
Investigators said they are now going to look into open cases involving attacks on transients to see if they are relate.

"We want to bring justice to everybody who was attacked by these individuals,' Drobik continued. 'They may have been boasting that they’ve attacked 50 people but, that’s what they told us and, specifically transients."

Authorities have yet to officially confirmed the identities of the two victims. Their transient background and the severity of their injuries have made identifying them somewhat difficult, Drobik said.

The department is asking anyone in the homeless community with information to get in touch with them. Drobik said any transients uncomfortable approaching police can also contact them through any social service agency.

'Just please come forward,' Drobik said.

Rios has been charged with two counts each of murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree felony and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He also faces three counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and one count each of tampering with evidence and robbery.

Carrillo and Tafoya have also been charged with murder - as adults.

All three are currently in custody.

Emily and her children via Invisible People [VIDEO] - www.Houseless.org

Emily has a Home it's her family, but she is missing a House!

Below is yet another story about a family who find themselves at the mercy of a system in the United States of America that often shuns its own citizens for  nothing more than falling on hard times.

Life is quite good for many in the USA, but for many, praying for a roof over ones head and food to eat becomes the major focus of survival. Sure there are many, many so-called not for profits in the business of HELP, but who do they actually serve? For many it's their business interest of keeping real estate, pensions and/or some sort of tax benefit. Others do it for the correct reasons, but don't favour as well.

The sad part of people having to live as Emily and her children, is that the United States of America claims itself as a "Christian" nation, but for this to be true and actual, the only ones without a place to lay their head, have food to eat and a life for them, would be those who willingly choose the "Houseless" way of life. Perhaps the saddest part is that the USA is not, in fact, a real life practicing nation that follows the one called "Christo".  

Pray and if you can, search out this family and/or others such as Emily and her children and do what is natural and correct, HELP!

Emily and her children

Emily and her husband live in a hotel near St Louis with their 4 kids and another one on the way.  When we walked in Emily  was giving her son a “time out” by sending him to the bathroom. There is no other room.  There is no privacy. My heart broke while visiting with Emily and her children. You can feel the nonstop stress this young mother must experience.

Emily’s husband lost his job. They then bounced around family until their car broke down and they ended up at this hotel. That was almost a year ago.

Living in weekly rate hotels often becomes a strap. It’s $1,000 a month to live there, which is often just most people’s paycheck. Emily’s husband is now back working and they have been lucky enough to save up some money, yet with an eviction on their record – finding a house or apartment to rent can be challenging.

Special thanks to Paul Kruse.

Albuquerque, New Mexico Police execute "Houseless" Man for Illegal Camping - www.Houseless.org

"Protect & Serve" Officers, OOPS let's get it correct, MURDERERS Dominque Perez and Kieth Sandy. (APD)

Not a day goes past that from the East coast to the West coast, North and South, somewhere in the United States of America those who can least afford, or at many times, are undeserving of being harassed, abused, stolen from, deceived, looked over and/or "Pimped" by the system of "Help" in the USA and/or in this case, murdered by POLICE (Protect and Serve).

Mr. James M. Boyd with his hands up. Just look at the fire power for "The Houseless".

The following articles are about 38-year-old James M. Boyd who was fatally wounded (MURDERED) by Albuquerque police in the Sandia Foothills on Sunday, 16 march, 2014. Mr. Boyd, although apparently having some run-ins with police and being described as having mental issues, wasn't given any due process to prove himself innocent. Instead, he was gunned down by well equipped soldiers of the growing "USA Police State" where if you don't comply they way these nasty, demanding, controllers of humans demand, they apparently have no problems sleeping after murdering those who they deem worthless. Some of the police who took part in murdering Mr. Boyd have corrupt past themselves. So why are these nasty, murderous minded people on the "Protect & Serve" citizen paid for force?


Mr. Boyd hasn't been the first "Houseless" person to be executed or have a life turned into dust by those who are of the system (business) of "HELP" and/or "Protect & Serve", but few are ever made known to the public for the very simple reason that the damage caused by those falsely presenting to the world of being righteous is controlled. Sometimes though, the evil forced upon another can't be contained.

A personal experience of mine comes from the Department of State & out of Dandridge, Tenn. where those you seek out to help when in need didn't, but they didn't go as far to murder. Instead they did what they could bringing more suffering in hopes that their victim would resort to taking ones' own life or die along the way. That never happened and this TRUTH is coming their way and to you!

It's shocking as well with who it involves and how over $190,00.00 of assets went wrongly into hands of the greedy. Also, the way out #Corruption within the Department of State. Jefferson County,TN "Protect and Serve" employees abused their jobs & the trust of others only to take advantage of a victim with just stopping short of MURDERING the victim.

This horrible ordeal is coming, so please don't be distracted away from Mr. James M. Boyd being murdered by some of the same "Protect & Serve".


Shock Video: Albuquerque Cops Open Fire on Man for Illegally Camping

APD stands by its use of force, while others label the shooting “murder”

Adan Salazar
March 24, 2014

You can add one more item to the list of things that will potentially get you killed by police: illegal camping.

New Mexico police are standing by their decision to shoot and kill 38-year-old homeless man James M. Boyd, who last Sunday made the ill-fated decision to shack up in the Sandia foothills due east of Albuquerque.

“Boyd was arguing with police for more [than] three hours last Sunday in the foothills after officers went to talk to him about illegally camping in open space,” reports KRQE.

But police soon grew weary of attempting to peacefully resolve the issue with the transient, who was approached as he was sleeping, and resorted instead to lobbing a flash-bang grenade, then firing a cascade of bullets as the man turned to escape, dispatching the supposed threat within a matter of seconds.
The Albuquerque Journal picks up the story:
The shots come after a confrontation in which the man, identified as 38-year-old James Boyd, tells police he’s going to walk down the mountain with them.
“Don’t change up the agreement,” Boyd says. “I’m going to try to walk with you.”
He tells officers he’s not a murderer.
Boyd picks up his belongings and appears ready to walk down toward officers. An officer fires a flash-bang device, which disorients Boyd.
Boyd appears to pull out knives in both hands as an officer with a dog approaches him. He makes a threatening motion toward the officer, then starts to turn around away from police.
That’s when shots ring out, and Boyd hits the ground. Blood can be seen on the rocks behind him.
After being rendered motionless, and even though the man can be heard moaning, “Please don’t hurt me,” and, “I can’t move,” APD officers proceed to fire beanbag rounds at Boyd, and sic their canine on him before stepping on his hand to make him release two small knives prior to handcuffing him.

Screen capture from helmet cam footage shows Call of Duty-style POV and similar military tactics used to engage non-violent “threat.”

Police are convinced they were justified in killing Boyd and said they relied on various non-lethal methods before they opened fire with live ammo.

“Do I believe it was justified shooting? Yes, if you follow case law, ‘Garner versus Tennessee’, there was directed threat to an officer,” APD police chief Gordon Eden commented, citing a Supreme Court case which ruled that police can shoot a fleeing suspect who they believe “poses a significant threat of death or serious physical injury to the officer or others.”

Meanwhile, APD’s release of helmet cam footage of the incident, which they say clearly shows Boyd posed a significant threat, is instead being regarded as a clear indication that the man was murdered in cold blood for a non-violent offense.


“I’m shocked. I’ve never seen a murder captured on videotape before,” attorney Joe Kennedy told KRQE. “This is… I’ve never seen anything quite like this.”

“There was another way to approach this whole situation that didn’t have to result in someone dying,” Peter Simonson, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico, said. “We need a trustworthy investigation of incidents like this.”

Simonson says Boyd’s case should be considered in the Department of Justice investigation of Albuquerque PD for its use of force tactics.

Police are still waiting on a medical investigator to determine Boyd’s precise cause of death. In the meantime, the officers who opened fire on Boyd are on leave.
