Cam Newton and Colin Kaepernick spoke out on a photo that appeared to show the two NFL players in each other's faces.
The Baltimore County police officers who shot and killed Korryn Gaines after an hours-long standoff in August will not face charges, according to Gaines' family attorney J. Wyndal Gordon.
On Monday, lawyers for the family of Korryn Gaines notified the Baltimore County Police Department of their intent to sue for $4 million, according to The Baltimore Sun.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton missed a huge opportunity to make a stand about race issues in a recent GQ interview released on Monday.
Baltimore County Police officials have not identified the officer who fatally shot Korryn Gaines. They have safety concerns for the officer.
One of the officers kicked the door open and saw Korryn Gaines point a shotgun in their direction, demanding that they leave. Police retreated, calling for backup.
Authorities say they were forced to fire at Gaines after she pointed her gun at them, threatening to kill. Officers, whose names have not been released, fired one shot, missing Gaines. She then fired back twice in retaliation, and was fatally struck by three bullets.
