A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer charged with voluntary manslaughter is due in court Tuesday.
Officer Randall Kerrick shot and killed an unarmed man over the weekend. His name was Jonathan Ferrell, and he was 24 years old. He wrecked his car in northeast Charlotte early Saturday morning, and then banged on the door of a home nearby around 2 a.m. The woman living there called the police.
When officers arrived, he ran toward them. Officer Kerrick fired several rounds, killing him.
