Philadelphia Police Officer Shoots Suspect in Head During Deadly Struggle  Police claim man was reaching for a loaded handgun when officer opened fireBy Dan Stamm  Monday, Dec 15, 2014)

     The family of Brandon Tate-Brown asked for the NAACP to also look into the circumstances that led to the 26-year-old being shot during a police stop in Philly's Mayfair neighborhood. 
The family of a man shot in the head and killed by a Philadelphia police officer sought answers in the hours after the deadly incident during a traffic stop in the city’s Mayfair section.
The deadly gunshot rang out around 2:45 a.m. along the 6600 block of Frankford Avenue after police said the suspect reached for a loaded handgun — stolen last year — in his rental car.
"I would like to know why the police, law enforcement, has the right to kill instead of disabling," the victim's mother Tanya Dickerson said. "It has to stop, this is enough already."
Dickerson later identified her son Brandon Tate-Brown as gunshot victim.
