WATCH: New Jersey Cops Shoot and Kill Armed Man as Witnesses Record

For almost a minute, it appeared as if the cops were about to give the white man with the gun a pass to the dismay of the black witnesses who were recording, proclaiming they would have shot him had he been black.

But Paterson police opened fire 58 seconds into the video, killing the man who apparently was committing suicide by cop.

The victim has been identified as Luan Agolli, a 42-year-old financial advisor for Wells Fargo. At this time, it is not known what caused Agolli to want to take his own life but it likely was related to the coronavirus which has stress and anxiety levels soaring. Just last week, Agolli shared an article on LinkedIn on how to deal with coronavirus anxiety. The incident took place Thursday after police received a call about a man with a gun.

According to the New Jersey Attorney General’s office:

The investigation is being conducted by the Integrity Bureau within the Office of Public Integrity and Accountability and the New Jersey State Police Homicide Unit.

According to the preliminary investigation, uniformed officers from the Paterson Police Department responded at approximately 4:09 p.m. yesterday to a 9-1-1 call reporting a man with a gun in the first block of Carroll Street. When officers arrived, they encountered the subject, later identified as Agolli, who was armed with a handgun and walking in and around the intersection of Carroll and Harrison Streets.  For several minutes, Agolli ignored repeated commands from the officers to drop his weapon and, instead, continued to walk in and out of the intersection, holding the gun in his hand and, at times, raising it.  During the standoff, officers fired at Agolli, fatally wounding him.  Emergency medical personnel responded and Agolli was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation is ongoing and being conducted pursuant to a law enacted in January 2019, Senate Bill 1036, which requires that the Attorney General’s Office conduct investigations of a person’s death that occurs during an encounter with a law enforcement officer acting in the officer’s official capacity or while the decedent is in custody.

In the second video below, a woman is recording from an upstairs window. After more than two minutes of police refraining from firing their guns, the woman says, “boy, if he was black.”

Less than ten seconds later, at least four officers shot him more than ten times.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
