A North Carolina police officer is charged with killing an unarmed man. Newly-released 9-1-1 tapes are sheddling light on what happened Saturday morning, when Jonathan Ferrell, a former Florida A-and-M football player, was shot and killed by a Charlotte police officer. A police investigation found Ferrell was unarmed and might have actually been approaching the officer for help after crashing his car. Alina Machado has more on the investigation. Caller: "I need help!" Dispatcher: "Where are you at?" Caller: "There's a guy breaking in my front door." Dispatcher: "There's a guy breaking in your front door?" Caller: "He's trying to kick it down." It was that frantic call for help that Randall Kerrick and two other Charlotte Police officers were responding to when they encountered Jonathan Ferrell. The 24-year-old had just survived a bad car crash and apparently was looking for help himself when he pounded on the front door of a house around 2:30 Saturday morning. The woman opened the door and panicked when she realized it was a stranger. Caller: "Oh, my God. Please. Oh, my God I can't believe I opened up the door. What the 'bleep' is wrong with me?" Operator: You thought it was your husband?" Caller: "Yes, he works nights. Oh, my God, he has a gun, and I can't find it...(inaudible)." When officers arrived, they say Ferrell ran toward them. One tried to subdue him, unsuccessfully, with a taser. Police say Kerrick fired 12 shots, 10 of them hit Ferrell, killing him. The Charlotte man was unarmed. Authoritieshave not yet released dash cam video of the shooting, but family attorney Chris Chesnut say he and the Ferrell family have met with police and watched the video. "You can see, you can tell he's unarmed," says Chesnut. "You can tell he approaches the officers and you can see two dots, laser beams in the center of his chest, and then he gets excited, and he's like, wait, wait, wait, and he';s coming forward saying, stop, and he goes off camera, and you just hear shots, one, two, three, four, (pause) one, two, threem four, five, six, (pause) One, two." But police say Officer Kerrick told investigators, right after the shooting, quote, "the suspect assaulted hum by unknown means" and he had, quote, "apparent minor injuries" but refused treatment. Still, police called the shooting "excessive" and charged the 27-year-old officer with voluntary manslaughter, a felony, less than 20 hours later. "We're confident that the resolution of this case will be found that Officer Kerrick's actions were justified on the night in question," says defense attorney Michael Greene. Ferrell's mother, meanwhile, says a part of her heart is gone, but she still forgives Kerrick. "I definitely want justice," says Georgia Ferrell. "I pray for him, each and every day, but I do want justice 'cause I don't want this to happen to anyone." Kerrick is free on bond. No trial date has been set.
