Black unarmed Miami man shot by police while on ground with hands up
Charles Kinsey was shot while lying on the ground with his hands up.
“All he has is a toy truck,” the man shouts. “I am a behavior therapist at a group home.”
Charles Kinsey said the footage, released by his attorney, shows the moment Monday when he tried to convince North Miami police not to harm his patient, a 23-year-old with autism who was sitting on the ground beside him.
“I was more worried about him than myself,” Kinsey told CNN affiliate WSVN-TV in Miami.
“As long as I’ve got my hands up, they’re not gonna shoot me, that’s what I’m thinking,” Kinsey said. “Wow, was I wrong.”
Now Kinsey is hospitalized with a gunshot wound.
