Hello,

My name is Andrew Benitez, and on Friday October 16,2015, the hardest thing I have ever had to do was tell my mom that her youngest son, my little brother, was shot and killed by San Francisco Police officers. 

With so much still unknown as to why this happened, what is known is that it took almost a full day before I was notified. Everyone is my family is in complete disbelief that something like this has happend. 

Herbert Benitez was 27 years old and supposed to turn 28 in two weeks. Instead of celebrating, my family now has to figure out how we will bury his body. While everyone is coping, this has hit my mom the most as they were on their way to go eat lunch. She was a block away when all of this went down and had no clue until I told her the next day.

My family has never asked for assistance for anything and struggled to find solutions over the years. However, this is a struggle that we can't handle on our own, which is why any assistance is greatly appreciated. I know many of you may have never met my brother, but I know he would have appreciated the support given during this terrible time.

I appreciate the fact that you took time to read this, and I hope you are able to help us during this difficult time.

Thank you,
Andrew Benitez
