Default Re: Vigil held seeking answers (A Mirror) on why their yardape was killed while firing at SWAT

Vigil held for 18-year-old killed in West Mobile officer-involved-shooting

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Family, friends and community activists gathered on Lakeview Drive in West Mobile to remember Treyh Webster – and call for transparency.

Thursday would have been his 19th birthday.

SWAT served a “high risk” warrant at his home earlier this month. Investigators say Webster fired at the officers and SWAT tried to de-escalate – but when Webster didn’t stop, police fired back.

“Change needs to happen so mothers won’t have to go through these types of situations, and that’s on both ends,” said Damian Marks, vice president of the Mobile Police Citizens Community Relations Advisory Council, who was present at the vigil.

Webster’s mother, Georgette Sons, spoke briefly. Through tears, she wished her son a happy birthday and pleaded for change to prevent this from happening again.

Mobile County DA: Accused robber killed in officer-involved shooting POSTED FEB 4, 2021
MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – FOX10 News has learned new details in a deadly officer-involved shooting early Thursday morning in West Mobile. Mobile County District Attorney Ashley Rich says a robbery suspect was killed when he came out of a bedroom firing at police officers.

The shootout resulted in the death of Trey Webster, 18, who had been arrested in December on a robbery charge.

Rich said police investigated reports that Webster and his brother, Tyhre Webster, fired at a witness whom they tried to persuade not to testify in the robbery case. Tyhre Webster, 22, also has an arrest record stemming from allegations that he shot into an occupied vehicle in April.
