Julianna Arocha started this petition to Mississippi Governor and

May 3, 2021 an infant was shot in a standoff with police.

La'Mello Parker was caught in a standoff with police after his father, Eric Smith was caught running from the police in a car. Police knew their was a baby in the car, yet they still shot La'Mello. There have been said to have been at least 50 law enforcement vehicles at the scene. The agencies involved were the Mississippi Highway Patrol, Louisiana State Police, Biloxi Police Department, and the U.S Marshal Service. Deputies from Harrison, Hancock, and Jackson counties were also on the scene. 

The baby was reported to be in a stable condition by police. Unfortunately, on Tuesday morning the baby would be pronounced dead.

We need to bring justice for the shooting of this baby, and for the police's lack of responsibility for handling this situation. You can not justify the killing of an infant. Police need to stop taking Black people's lives. No justice, no peace.

Below I will be providing the articles/ sources to where you can read about the situation, and where I got my information.
