Twenty-three year-old, mother of 2 kids, Korryn Gaines was pronounced dead on Aug. 1, after being shot by Balitimore police in her Randallstown, Maryland apartment. Korryn had reportedly hold herself up in her home refusing police entry.
The reason the police were there in the first place is still sketchy. Initially, it was reported that the 23-year-old mother was being served a warrant for a failure to appear in court, and now news has come out that police were serving an arrest warrant.
To this date, there has been no official video released of the actual shooting of Korryn Gaines. Because of this, the facts of what happened behind those doors are unknown to the general public. The police claim she pointed a shotgun at an officer during the initial encounter, which escalated the incident. While the story of exactly what happened is still unfolding, what we do know is this: Gaines was shot and killed during the incident, and her 5-year-old son was wounded. Her son was shot in one of his extremities and suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Korryn’s next door neighbor, Roman Coleman, recently called into to a podcast called “My Skin Is My Sin” and said he was in his home the morning the incident occurred. During the podcast, Roman shed some additional light on the occurrences of that day from his point of view. His portion of the podcast can be heard here:
