Mission Activists Push DA for Charges 679 Days After Police Shooting

Public Defender Jeff Adachi stood alongside family and friends of police shooting victims at the Hall of Justice Thursday as they hoisted banners of Amilcar Perez Lopez, a 21-year old Mission District resident who was shot and killed by police on February 26, 2015. Activists in the Justice for Amilcar Coalition have repeatedly asked for charges to be filed against officers in police shootings, and activists Thursday demanded that District Attorney George Gascón conclude an ongoing investigation and charge the officers who shot Perez Lopez nearly two years ago.
