Lawyer Justin Bamberg holds news conference for family of Kouren Thomas, who was shot in Raleigh on Sunday
A high-profile attorney representing the family of a 20-year-old man who police say was shot and killed by a homeowner likened the case to the Florida shooting of Trayvon Martin during an emotional news conference Thursday. Copley has been charged with first-degree murder in the early Sunday shooting in North Raleigh of Kouren-Rodney Bernard Thomas. Police say Thomas was shot when Copley fired a shotgun from inside his garage. Flanked by family members of Thomas on Thursday, Bamberg said he is confident that justice will be served for the man’s family. Bamberg cited similarities between the Martin and Thomas shootings: both were African-American males and both were allegedly shot by men claiming to be part of neighborhood watch.
There is one key difference Bamberg said, claiming there was no confrontation between Thomas and Copley. Friends of Thomas say he was leaving a party on Singleleaf Lane about 12:30 a.m. Sunday when he was shot. Bamberg said all the Thomas family wants is justice, and that justice will come with the jury convicting the shooter and the judge giving an appropriate sentence.
