Childs’ family still asking for answers about his death


Family members say they accept the apologies from city leaders after their loved one was shot and killed by a Shreveport police officer.

The family expressed their concerns at Tuesday’s city council meeting.

Police say Childs died after officer Treveion Brooks and Child’s got into a shootout on Hollywood Avenue.

Councilman James Green says he asked the police chief to talk about the case but he could only share limited information because the investigation is ongoing.

“Our lives matter. When these people run for office they are at your door, they have all kind of meetings but when something happens in the neighborhood you can’t see them. We do forgive you for what you did Mr. Brooks and we’re just hoping for justice,” said Inez Porter, Childs’ grandmother.

Councilman Green also says he went to the address where Childs’ supposedly lived but it was vacant.

Officer Brooks was not injured and is on paid leave.

Child’s grandmother tells  NBC 6, she was told by Shreveport police the case was supposed to be turned into the district attorney today.
