Home News & Resources Wrongful Death at Local Charlotte Restaurant Leads to Lawsuit

Wrongful death incidents are a tragedy. Unfortunately, these wrongful deaths go without justice or restitution and the income lost as well as preparations can cause financial burdens as well as untold grief. At Brown Moore & Associates, our Charlotte wrongful death lawyers want to discuss a recent wrongful death that occurred here in Charlotte. This awful and avoidable incident caused the lives of children to grow up without a father.

What Happened In This Charlotte Wrongful Death?

On March 25, 2019, Danquirs Franklin was killed by police while in the parking lot of a Burger King. After obeying a police request, a police officer shot him twice. After shooting Mr. Franklin, officers neglected to administer any first aid. Paramedics were able to administer first aid, but only after 8 minutes after the shooting.

Danquirs Franklin was a father of three children, and the loss they sustained is immense, tragic, and was completely avoidable. Now his children have lost a father and will have to navigate the challenging waters of having less income without compensation from a civil suit.
