Stockton, CA - Authorities say a documented gang member was killed after he assaulted police Friday evening, while his family defends him as a generous man who they say made mistakes but turned his life around in recent years.
Luther Brown Jr., 32, was identified by the Stockton Police Department as the man fatally shot by an officer about 7:30 p.m. in front of a duplex in the 2700 block of Burlington Place. Police said Brown was shot after resisting authorities and using one of the officer's nightsticks against him.
He was a gang member, police said, but authorities did not disclose his affiliation. However, the department does not typically release to the public the specific sects to which alleged gang members are connected.
