Tallahassee, FL - The funeral for Jonathan Ferrell is Saturday 11am at the Old West Enrichment Center on Lake Bradford Road.
Jonathan Ferrell was shot by police September 14th after he allegedly charged officers.
According to the Associated Press, Jonathan A. Ferrell, 24, who played for FAMU in 2009-10 had recently moved to North Carolina. Ferrell had apparently been in a wreck and was seeking help at a nearby house, according to a statement from Charlotte-Mecklenburg police. A woman answered the door and, when she didn’t recognize the man, called 911.
Officers responding to the breaking-and-entering call found Ferrell a short distance from the home, police said. As they approached him, Ferrell ran toward the officers and was hit with a Taser. Police said he continued to run toward them when officer Randall Kerrick fired his gun, hitting Ferrell several times. Ferrell died at the scene.
