Man Gunned Down Over Pellet Gun Was Not Given Chance to Drop Weapon, Says Family

The family of a man who was fαtally shοt for holding a pellet gun at Wal-Mart spoke out on John CrawfordTuesday. The family of John Crawford III said that he was not given a chance to drop his toy weapon.

The attorney for the family, Michael Wright, said that the Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine should “refer this case to the Department of Justice. Not to a special prosecutor.”

Beavercreek police gunned down Crawford while he was holding a pellet gun at an Ohio Wal-Mart. While police say Crawford refused to put the gun down, his family says he was not given an opportunity to drop the pellet gun.

LeeCee Johnson, who has two kids with Crawford, says she was on the phone with Crawford when he was gunned down by police.

“He said he was at the video games playing videos and he went over there by the toy section where the toy guns were,” she said.

“And the next thing I know, he said ‘It’s not real,’ and the police start shooting and they said ‘Get on the ground,’ but he was already on the ground because they had shοt him,” Johnson explained.

Wright says Crawford was “shοt on sight” and never afforded the opportunity to put down the pellet gun.

Dewine said although Crawford’s family has seen the surveillance video from Wal-Mart, he has no plans of publicly releasing it.

“What’s important is that it’s not been publicly released.  I thought the family had the right to view it.  The mom did not want to view it.  I understand it.  The dad did view it,” said  Dewine.  “To put the video out on TV is not the right thing to do.”

A grand jury will decide whether charges will be filed in this case.
