Louisville Police held a press conference to discuss the shooting. You can watch the press conference below:

Young’s family is questioning the shooting, and say he was unarmed when he was shot more than 10 times by the Louisville officers.

“My brother weighed 130 pounds soaking wet,” Christopher Hall told the Courier-Journal. “There’s no way you can justify putting over 10 bullets in my little brother. … What could he have possibly done that would justify him being shot so many times?”
