Protest planned after deadly shooting of Edmond teen

EDMOND, Okla. – A protest is planned in the wake of the deadly shooting of a 17-year-old in Edmond.

It all started earlier this week when a woman called 911 after her neighbors ran to her front porch in a panic.

“There are two girls, two white ladies. I guess their boyfriend is beating up on one of them,” a 911 caller said.

The caller then handed the phone to Kamri Pollock.

“You can come to my house and check everything out but my boyfriend just flipped out,” Kamri Pollock said on the 911 call. “I have no idea what’s going on.”

Pollock told the 911 operator her boyfriend – Isaiah Lewis – was acting off Monday afternoon.

Moments later, neighbors called police after seeing a naked man running in the street and hopping over backyard fences.

Police searched for more than an hour before spotting him breaking into the home of a complete stranger.

At some point, police say a physical confrontation occurred between officers and Lewis.

"Both officers were violently assaulted during this confrontation inside the house," Jenny Wagnon, from the Edmond Police Department, told News 4.

After tasing Lewis, police say they were forced to shoot Lewis.

“Our use of force training is initially hands on and then to deploy a taser,” Jenny Wagnon, from the Edmond Police Department, said. “And we know both of those happened and then firing the hand gun is protocol if the first two are not successful.”

However, Lewis' family says they didn't need to use deadly force.

"He was not armed," Vicki Lewis, Isaiah Lewis' mother, said. "He didn't deserve to die the way that he did. He didn't deserve to die, period. "

After the shooting, one of the officers was taken to the hospital for treatment for the injuries suffered during the confrontation.

On Friday, the Oklahoma City chapter of Black Lives Matter is planning to protest the deadly shooting as Lewis' family demands answers.

"We want answers and we want the truth," Vicki Lewis said. "Everybody deserves to know what happened."

The protest will begin at Boulevard Academy, where Lewis attended high school, before marching to the Edmond Police Department.
