Dijon Kizzee autopsy shots, Attorneys for family of Dijon Kizzee say he tried.
Attorneys representing the family of Dijon Kizzee on Tuesday presented the findings of an independent autopsy. Kizzee, a 29-year-old Black man, was shot and killed by deputies from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department on August 31.
Kizzee was fatally shot after deputies tried to stop him for riding his bicycle on the wrong said of the road, police said last week. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Captain Kent Wegener said Thursday that Kizzee fled from the officers who tried to cite him for a traffic violation, according to CBS Los Angeles. At one point, Kizzee dropped a pistol and, according to Wegener, he “bends over, reaches, picks up the gun and is shot while he stands with the gun in hand.”
Wegener also claimed the gun was stolen during a 2017 burglary in Las Vegas.
