A vigil was held in Wolfe City on October 5 for Jonathan Price, who was shot dead by police on the weekend during a reported domestic dispute at a gas station.
Local media, citing witnesses, reported a couple had been arguing when Price intervened. Officers used a stun gun on Price before shooting him.
The officer involved in the shooting has been placed on administrative leave, according to reports.
Former MBL player Will Middlebrooks raised more than 50,000 dollars for Price’s family using GoFundMe, saying in a Facebook post that they were childhood friends.
