“Mr. Black should be right now being commended for his heroism and not sitting in the morgue,” the family’s lawyer, Siddartha Rathod blasted the police response.
Rathod said Black’s wife, Jeanette, called police and described her family members. She said, “My husband is wearing this,” according to Rathod.
Rathod insists that the 73-year-old ‘did everything right’.
‘His actions saved his grandson’s life. He should be in the mayor’s office getting a commendation for his heroism. Instead he’s in the morgue,’ Rathod said.

Harper who used the aliases ‘Harper Boy Killa’ and ‘Harper Chaos Lil,’ was previously accused of attempted murder and child abuse in 2011 but the charges were dropped. He had a long history of violence and weapons violations.
Richard Black’s stepson Chad Hayashi  who is the father of the 11-year-old the intruder was choking was in the East Montview Boulevard, Colorado, house during the 1.30am break in. They household woke up to find Harper strangling his son in the bathroom of their suburban Denver house, Hayashi said during a Thursday interview on ABC
Hayashi claims after his dad was shot, he was handcuffed on the floor rather than being taken for immediate medical treatment after being shot. Black died hours later in hospital.

Lt. Richard ‘Gary’ Black, who grew up in Anderson, South Carolina, graduated from The Citadel and fought in the war in Vietnam where he received a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart for his bravery.
Evidence shows that the officers appear to have opened fire without even entering the house. The officer who shot Black, reportedly fired through the open front door.
Hayashi said he wrapped his ‘soaking wet and bleeding’ son in a towel, and was being rushed out the house by police when he saw his stepfather, handcuffed on the ground.
‘My dad is down, face down, kind of rotated to the right and I can see the left side of his face and he’s handcuffed,’ Hayashi said.
‘I reach down, and I don’t remember if I touched his shoulder or his face, but he looked at me and I got pushed off by an officer and out the door.’
That was the last time he would see Black alive.

Chad Hayashi says afetr the shooting, members of his household were taken to the police headquarters and initially put in the room with the woman who claimed to be Harper’s mother and the other man who had been in his house, until they almost came to blows and were moved.
They waited for hours and were questioned before they were finally told that Black was dead.
Hayashi also claims that the police told them a lie.’I was told that he was told to drop the weapon and he didn’t,’ Hayashi said.
‘I never heard anything about ‘drop your weapon.’ There was no warning at all. They should have been yelling from the moment they hit the driveway, 80 feet down. It’s a long driveway.
‘They should have been yelling, especially as many police officers as there were on scene.’
The grandson was taken to hospital for serious but non life threatening injuries. His grandmother Jeannette Black was also taken for treatment on a wound that reopened during the chaos.
The family’s lawyer Siddhartha H. Rathod insists that the 73-year-old ‘did everything right’.
‘His actions saved his grandson’s life. He should be in the mayor’s office getting a commendation for his heroism. Instead he’s in the morgue,’ Rathod said.

Richard Black’s officer-involved shooting death is the fourth police shooting in the city of Aurora, Colorado’s third-largest city on the eastern edge of Denver, in about a month. Authorities say the officer who killed Black also was involved in another fatal shooting on June 27 that is still being investigated. He returned to active duty on July 15.
Police in Aurora, so far have released only some details as they investigate the shooting in the racially mixed neighborhood of mostly 1950s ranch homes, saying they need to balance transparency with ensuring a credible investigation.
‘We know how important it is for our community to know and understand what occurred the night of this officer-involved shooting and making sure you have the best information possible,’ Chief Nick Metz said in a video posted online Wednesday.
Metz also expressed his sympathy to members of Black’s family.
‘This has been a very tragic situation and a very heartbreaking situation for everyone involved, and our hearts go out to the Black family,’ the chief said.
