Father of gunshot victim asks for justice on Father’s Day

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Father’s Day is a time when children show their fathers just how much they mean to them but for some fathers this holiday, it isn’t the same when their child isn’t here to celebrate

Walter Lee Boyd is the father of Brandon Terrell Washington.

Washington was shot at close range in the back of the head a few weeks ago.

Boyd tells us this holiday has been very difficult for him and his family without his son.

This father is asking, for one thing, this holiday … justice for his son.

“I don’t want no revenge for nothing because the Lord said vengeance is mine, but I do want justice. I love my son, I love him, and I miss him very much. So if you aware out there, listening, please just come forward and tell what you know,” said Washington.

Councilman Kenneth Stokes says more police presence is needed in the city to combat crime.
