WOODLAND HILLS (CBSLA.com) —A somber vigil was held in Woodland Hills Wednesday evening for an honors student who was fatally shot by Long Beach Police last week.
Feras Morad, a 2013 graduate of El Camino Real Charter School and a nationally-ranked debater, was shot by police on May 27.
Authorities said Morad jumped out of a two-story window in the 4600 block of 15th Street around 7:30 p.m. Police said he was combative and acting aggressively and apparently intoxicated. Police said they used less-than-lethal force to subdue Morad, including a stun gun but that the officer fired his weapon after Morad threatened to attack him.
On Wednesday evening, KCAL9’s Rachel Kim spoke to friends who said they’re still having trouble coming to grips with the fact he is gone.
“I loved you five years ago, I love you now, and I will always love you,” said one friend.
