The Delaware NAACP wants an independent investigation into the police shooting of Terrance Fletcher.
The Wilmington News Journal reports that initially the mayor had said that Fletcher pointed a gun at the Dover officer after being chased.
It was then, the mayor said, the officer shot Fletcher.
But the paper says the Dover police would not even confirm the mayor’s account or describe the circumstances of the shooting.
The News Journal reports that the white officer, whose name has not been released, shot the 21-year old in the torso.
