BALTIMORE, MD (WEAA) — Sunday, August 1 2021, marked five years since the police killing of 23-year-old Korryn Gaines.

Gaines' then 5-year-old son was inside the home at the time of the incident and was also shot by police.

 

Family, friends and supporters gathered Monday in Towson to commemorate Gaines’ death anniversary and to continue calls for justice.

 

Korryn’s mother, Rhonda Dormeus and Tamika Palmer, Breonna Taylor’s mother both spoke at the rally demanding justice, accountability and transparency.
