Attorney John Burris has announced he will file a civil rights lawsuit on behalf of the family of Mario Woods, the 26-year-old San Francisco man SFPD shot to death on December 2nd.

Police have maintained that the shooting was a measure taken in self defense, but Burris likens the killing to those of Laquan MacDonald and Ronald Johnson in Chicago. “Mario was used as target practice by reckless and malicious San Francisco police officers.” Burris said, noting the 21 wounds to Woods' body. “[The] killing is an outrage and an affront to the African American community.”

With the help of an independent audiovisual expert, Burris' team has enhanced new cell phone footage — which is graphic and disturbing — of the incident.

At a press conference from Burris and the Woods family, Chris Roberts of SF Weekly notes that based on the enhanced footage, Burris' team questions key components of the police story.

Meanwhile, the Examiner reports that high school students staging walkouts have headed to City Hall in protest of Woods'death

“Lincoln High School, June Jordan, Mission, Balboa, Galileo and many more schools are walking out this Friday to city hall to stop police brutality and justice for Mario Woods who was shot and killed by police men last week in the Bayview District,” reads one announcement shared with the media. “This needs to come to an end and we will fight until its over.”
