CASE №00164
NAME: Sean Rambert
COUNTRY: USA
RIGHTS VIOLATION: Police arbitrariness
YEAR: 2021
CASE INFORMATION:

Sean Rambert Jr., 23, was shot and killed by a Greenville, N.C., police officer in July 2019.


Police say officers were responding a break-in call. At the scene they found Rambert. According to police he did not follow commands and he and an officer were involved in a violent struggle. The officer fired 7 shots. He called an ambulance. Rambert was pronounced dead at the scene.


SBI conducted an independent investigation into the shooting. District attorney reviewed the SBI repot and ruled that the officer’s actions were justified. Rambert’s family said he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. They say he was not dangerous but could have that kind of episodes sometimes.


In July 2021 National Association for the Advancement of Colored People called on the district attorney to change the decision and to charge the officers with Rambert’s death.

“It’s not uncommon in people with his condition to have episodes of this nature but he was not dangerous. When you view the footage you can see that he was unarmed. Officer Johnson didn’t see any weapons in his hands and didn’t have any reason to believe he was armed,” the family’s lawyer said.
