Korryn Gaine’s Neighbor Gives His Account of What Happened The Day She Was Killed

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:

Call me a conspiracy theorist if you want but this guy sounds like the cops got to him. He sounds way to supportive of the police and what they did

This sounds like it was rehearsed. There is no emotion no nothing. Them cops did more to him in his house then what he is saying. I’m confused everyone keep saying they had a warrant but nobody has said they actually saw the warrant. Some of this man story don’t even add up. I saw the video the girl and her son made while they were in the house. The cop was standing behind a wall in the house wearing full riot gear and had a machine gun right at the girl and her son and they weren’t doing nothing. It saids like the cops either got to him or he just want his 15mins.
