Concerned community members in San Jose held a press conference/rally and vigil to renew their efforts to secure “Justice for Daniel Pham,” who was shot and killed by police officers in his backyard on May 10, reports Mercury News. Pham was shot after his brother called 911. The family said they told arriving officers that Pham was mentally ill. He had sliced his brother’s neck and was still holding the large knife when police arrived. All summer, Pham’s family and supporters have tried to persuade the district attorney to open the grand jury hearing into Pham’s death. There’s an online petition requesting that city release any and all findings regarding the shooting.
