Jonathan Ferrell police Officer Randall Kerrick

Justice must be served once again.

An ex-college football player named Jonathan Ferrell was shot down by a police officer 10 times after he was believed to be under the influence from a car crash.

According to Colorado News Day, Ferrell went to a random house for some help, where the woman called 911 but reported it as a break-in.

The cops responded with a shooting, but it turns out the toxicology report says that Ferrell was not under the influence at the time of the crash.

The site reports:

The attorney for the family of Jonathan Ferrell says the report confirms that the 24-year-old former Florida A&M football player wasn’t drunk the night of the September shooting. The report also shows there were no illegal drugs in his system.

Chris Chestnut said Ferrell was just trying to get help after he was injured in a car accident.

‘This confirms everything we’ve been saying since the day that Jonathan was killed: That this was an All-American guy who gave a friend a ride home and was just trying to get home himself when he had a car accident. And when he was runs to the officer for help, the officer shoots him 10 times,’ Chestnut told The Associated Press.

We pray for the family of Jonathan Ferrell and hope that justice is served for him.
