Patrick Underwood, a black federal officer, was trying to keep the peace during the violent riots taking place in Oakland, California when he was shot and killed. Another officer was reportedly wounded and in critical condition as well, both a result of the violence following the death of George Floyd.
A black federal officer, Patrick Underwood, was shot and killed in Oakland, California, Friday night as he attempted to keep the peace amid the violent riots sweeping California and the rest of the U.S. in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minnesota.
A senior official with the Department of Homeland Security tells ABC News that the shooting is related to the protest over George Floyd’s death. A second FPS officer was wounded and is in critical condition. His identity has not yet been released.
Federal officials say the two were at the Ronald Dellums Federal Building on Clay Street when a vehicle approached just before 10 p.m. Authorities say someone inside the vehicle fired shots at the contract security officers.
Federal officials announced later Saturday afternoon that the officers were watching over the protests when the shooting occurred.
The officer's death was confirmed in a Facebook post by his sister, Angela Underwood Jacobs: "My brother, Dave Patrick Underwood, a federal officer, was murdered 5/29/20 in Oakland California, while on duty during the riots. This Violence Must Stop.”
She will be holding a press conference on June 2 to speak about the injustice that her brother endured. She has a message for everyone and it's quite simple, "Stop the violence!"
