EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT)- NAACP President Rev. Gerald Arnold joined the family of Rodriguez Pam, the man shot to death by Evansville police on Sunday, as they continue to look for answers.
Rev. Arnold says Pam was a good man.
He was productive, he was doing some good things, Sunday night, we can’t answer that, we don’t know what really happened yet.Rev. Gerald Arnold
Evansville police say Pam was armed and was not complying with the officers’ demands but the family still has questions.
I just need some answers, I need to talk to somebody, and we need to get this settled.Mamie Cunningham, mother of Rodriguez Pam
Rev. Arnold says he watched the body cam footage with Evansville Police Chief Billy Bolin, adding Bolin will meet with Cunningham to answer questions she has in the case. But Cunningham says she has a message for the community.
