Our son Dane Scott Jr. was shot in the back after a police pursuit ended with his hands in the air on March 14th. He was only 18 years-old. A senior in high school.
Del City Police Department have not released the officers name. Witnesses are claiming he was shot in the back multiple times. They said he put his hands up and the officer fired multiple shots in to Dane's back.
Del City Police Department has a reputation of not being able to objectively handle investigations when it involves their own officers. We want nothing short of justice.
"They are the reason he is not here with us to this day. You can't justify shooting a man with his hands up, he's only a kid. He just turned 18. His whole life was ahead of him." -James Edward(Uncle)
This could be anyone's child. Please sign this petition and help us stand up to blatant abuse of authority and power. So Dane's death was not in vain and that of many others across the country.
Please join us in calling on Scott Pruitt, Oklahoma State's Attorney General, to investigate my son's murder and prosecute the officer for the shooting and killing of Dane Scott Jr.
