My nephew Jocques Clemmons was shot and killed on February 10, 2017. He was shot in the back by a Metro Police Officer while running away from him. He leaves behind 2 young boys ages 13 and 8. Jocques had no life Insurance and money raised will be used for funeral expense and any left over for his sons.

That is disgusting, Laurel. This is a page created by his mourning family. This in not a place to slander or give your irrelevant 2 cents. Go victim blame elsewhere.

Laurel Mcghee - a comment like that is in extremely bad taste on this page. The stated reason, by the police, for the shooting was that the officer was in imminent danger. I don't understand how someone running AWAY from the officer can possibly result in "imminent danger". There is video of the entire event. I suggest you watch it.

God bless his family. What's disgusting is this family lost a loved one. What's even more disgusting are the trolls who leave ridiculous comments. I guess compassion has left this world. God bless the ignorant trolls. Donate, leave a heartfelt comment, or move around. Clemmons family you are in my prayers.

Sorry for the families lose. However he attacked a law enforcement officer and got shot in the process. Don't make it sound like he was the victim.

Having gone to look at laurel's page, her cover image is of a purse, so I think she's just incapable of human feelings like love or caring for other humans? Literally not worth wasting breath or time on.

I am sorry he died but he should of listened to police. Fighting with a cop twice and having a gun and not obeying what the cop says is a recipe for disaster.

First, let me say how sorry I am that this happened. I know it shows you have reached your goal of $10,000 but will that also cover the gofundme expense? I would hate for people to stop giving just because the goal has been reached but you still have that bill to pay.
