Gathering held for man killed in police-involved shooting

BRIDGETON, N.J. (WPVI) -- A small gathering took place Monday night to mark the one-year anniversary of the death of 36-year-old Jerame Reid.

Reid was shot to death on New Year's Eve by two police officers in Bridgeton, New Jersey.

In August, a grand jury decided not to bring charges against the officers.

"We want to let it be known that we are not going to be quiet about this, you know, this was a father, this was a husband, this was a son, this was a good citizen in the community," said Michael Scott of the National Action Network.

On the night of the shooting, police said Reid defied orders to stay in the car after they found a handgun in his glove box.

Officers said they were concerned Reid had another weapon.
