UPDATE: Boy, 11, asked mum ‘what did I do?’ after he was shot in the chest by police


An unarmed 11-year-old was shot by the very Mississippi police officer he called to help protect his mum, his family attorney has said.

According to EsB, Aderrien Murry was ‘shot in the chest’ Saturday morning by an Indianola Police Department officer responding to a domestic call at his mother’s home.

His mum, Nakala, asked him to dial 999 at about 4am after an ex-partner showed up outside their home.

Aderrien complied with the officer’s orders to come out with his hands up, then officer shot him in the chest.

Nakala covered her son’s wound and applied pressure as blood pooled beneath her palm before medics arrived.

‘His words were, “Why did he shoot me? What did I do?” and he started crying,’ the boy’s mother said at a news conference on Monday.

Aderrien was taken to the University of Mississippi Medical Centre where he was placed on a ventilator and chest tube having suffered a collapsed lung, fractured ribs and a lacerated liver, Moore said.
