Statement from Cate Edwards, of Edwards Kirby law firm, who represents the Mojarrad family

“There is no indication from the report issued by the Raleigh Police Department, or from the initial evidence we have collected, that this situation required or authorized the use of deadly force. It is also evident that some of the information contained in the preliminary police report is inaccurate. For example, the majority of the eight gunshots that hit Soheil did not enter through the front of his body. Officer Edwards does not appear to have followed proper procedures, including the activation of his body camera and the appropriate escalation of force. The officer was unjustified in shooting Soheil, and this young man unnecessarily lost his life.”
