The Broward Sheriff's Office is telling the media that one of its deputies was "forced" to shoot a man Wednesday. The Deputy claims that the man, Jean Pedro Pierre, attacked them after they were called to a Lauderdale Lakes apartment complex regarding a disturbance between a man and a woman.
But that's the POLICE side of it. Others are saying that the officer started aggressively "beating" Jean with a blackjack nightstick - and that the unarmed Jean was Constitutionally defending himself against the illegal police attack.
Here is the video of the incident:
Jean was taken to Broward Health Medical Center after being shot by the deputy, but he did not survive.
