Over the course of two days in early July of last year, three black men, each of them under 40, were killed by police officers in different parts of the country — Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, La.; Philando Castile, outside of St. Paul, and Delrawn Small, in a case that drew far less national attention, in the Cypress Hills section of Brooklyn.
37-year-old Delrawn Small was shot and killed by NYPD Officer Wayne Isaacs on July 4, 2016 in East New York, Brooklyn. The killing occurred just one day before Alton Sterling was killed by police in Louisiana and two days prior to Philando Castile being killed by police in Minnesota. Isaacs killed Delrawn in front of his loved ones, including his four-month-old son and girlfriend. Click here to learn more about the call for Justice for Delrawn Small.
