Kingston Police Shoot and Kill Evan Freeman (22) (Sept. 12, 2019)

Kingston police shot and killed 22-year-old Evan Freeman on the afternoon of September 12, 2019. Freeman was said, by witnesses, to be experiencing some mental health distress and harming himself when police killed him. He was both hit with a taser and shot by Kingston Police Department officers.

Police are not health care providers. A large proportion of people killed by police need health supports but are instead met with police violence.
