Florida deputy shoots and kills Black airman Roger Fortson

A Florida deputy mistakenly entered the wrong apartment and fatally shot Black Air Force airman Roger Fortson, according to his family’s attorney. Fortson, 23, was alone in his apartment when the authorities entered, the attorney stated citing a witness who was on FaceTime with him during the incident. The witness’s account contradicts the deputy’s claim that Fortson pointed a gun at him. The deputy has been placed on administrative leave as the investigation continues. Attorney Ben Crump’s office released a statement Wednesday demanding justice for Fortson and holding the authorities accountable for their actions.
