Kajieme Powell

Kajieme Powell was a 25-year-oldman who had schizophrenia. He went to a store in St Lois, Missouri on August 20, 2014, where he grabbed some items and started pacing on the floor with a knife.  The police were called.  But even though one of the police officers was trained in crisis intervention, they shot and killed Kajieme rather than de-escalate the situation.  None of the police officers was charged, but the family has filed a lawsuit against the Department.
