Around thirty people rallied in front of the Laurens County courthouse today, saying they demanded justice for David Hooks.
He's the local contractor who was shot and killed by Laurens County deputies last year during a drug bust, but his family attorney says, no drugs were found in the home.
Several people signed petitions asking the grand jury to investigate the death of Hooks as a felony murder. "We expect the police to serve and protect us. When we have to fear the process and fear the law enforcement and coming into your home and potentially taking your life. It makes me very, very nervous," said Tanya Burgess.
Burgess says as an attorney and citizen from Laurens County, the David Hooks case is shocking. She came here to rally for Hooks and petition the grand jury to look at this case as a felony murder.
