Mourners remember Jonathan Ferrell

Two years since he was shot and killed by a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer, mourners remember Jonathan Ferrell Monday during memorials marking the anniversary of his death.

Ferrell was shot and killed by officer Randall Kerrick, who was responding with fellow officers to a 911 call about a possible home invasion in 2013. Dash cam video released during Kerrick's recent trial, shows the deadly encounter between Ferrell and officers.

Ferrell's mom, Georgia Ferrell and other family members laid flowers Monday at the site in a ditch near a community swimming pool in an east Charlotte neighborhood. The mother said he felt like he was being killed all over again. Meanwhile activists will gather in Marshall Park around 7 p.m. to remember Ferrell and call on prosecutors to retry Ferrell.

The state attorney general's office, which was overseeing Ferrell's voluntary manslaughter charges, have previously said they will not retry Kerrick. The jury in the August trial became deadlocked and a mistrial was declared.
