Description

On Tuesday, June 24, 2014, Lavon King was fatally shot in the chest by a Jersey City police officer during a struggle. Family and friends mourning his death dismissed the description of events given by authorities, with many calling for "Justice for Lavon," including Rev. Herbert Daughtry who eulogized King. Following the funeral, mourners marched from Watson Mortuary Service to the corner of Grant Ave. and Martin Luther King Dr. to re-erect the memorial for King which was ripped down by the city on orders from Mayor Steven Fulop.
