Gwinnett Police Shoot, Kill Man

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- A man was shot and killed by police outside a Gwinnett County apartment complex Wednesday night, police said. Family members said the victim didn’t deserve to die.

“One thing I can say, it’s unjustified, and I know this,” the victim’s mother, Cassandra Williams, said.

Williams’ son, Darryl Fuller, was shot outside the JSD apartments on Singleton Road at about 9 p.m., police said. Gwinnett police said members of their gang unit came across Fuller amongst a group of men.

“They were responding to some suspicious behavior,” Gwinnett police Cpl. Jake Smith said.

Smith said that when officers approached the group, everyone ran off except Fuller.

“The suspect drew a gun. Our officers fired one shot, struck the suspect. No shots were returned,” Smith said.

Family members said Fuller died at the hospital. They don’t believe the story police are telling, and have hired a lawyer.

“We’ll never get the proper answer ourselves. We are going to let law handle law. Righteously,” said Fuller’s uncle Tony Williams.

The officer involved in the shooting was placed on paid administrative leave, pending the outcome of the investigation.

I JUST DO NOT BEIEVE HOW GWINNETT CO. POLICE REACTED IN THE CONFRONTATION OF MY BEST FRIEND "DOC" (DARRYL FULLER). FIRST OF ALL I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT HE WOULD EVEN PULL A GUN OUT ON ANYONE. HE WAS A VERY GOOD PERSON AND I CANT WAIT TO SEE JUSTICE IN THIS CASE! GWINNETT CO. POLICE IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED IN ANY SITUATION.

I just can't believe Gwinnett Police. he had no right to lose his life like this. I don't think he pulled a gun, I don't even think he had a gun on him. The police just wanted a reason to shoot, because if he did have a gun on him WHERE IS THE GUN??
R.I.P DOC I miss you. muah!!!

This is a terrible in justice and I pray that Heaven do not rest until the truth is revealed and justice is served. There have been too many unjust killings of young black men in the U.S. and now its my love one! I feel like I have been robbed of a great treasure.

All i can say is that God has a purpose for everything even though we cant see it it is there. Doc i was fortunate enough to have you and God have mercy on your soul. Police everywhere need to be invedtigated before given the power to dictate other peoples life.
