Here’s everything you need to know.

A young man is on life support after being shot by a police officer

CBS reported that on the night of the shooting, Erik Cantu was apparently sitting in his car with a female companion in a McDonald’s parking lot.

Additionally, Officer James Brennand arrived at the scene after responding to a disturbance in the area.

Brennand claimed he became suspicious of Cantu’s vehicle because it was similar to the car that had escaped his grasp earlier that day.

Additionally, Brennand approached Cantu’s car and opened the door when he ordered him out of the car.

Surprised, Cantu reacted by backing up, which led to Brennand firing several shots at him through the window.

Meanwhile, Brian Powers, Cantu’s attorney, updated the teen’s condition during an interview with ABC News.

He said: “Thank you for your kind thoughts on the state of Erik’s recovery. We will inform you that he is still in critical condition and is literally fighting for his life every minute of the day due to the massive amount of trauma his body has suffered.’

He further noted, “She is still on life support. We need all the blessings we can get at this time.”

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus condemned Brennand’s actions in a press release.

He said: “Nothing that officer did that night was consistent with our training or our policies.”

Social media users react to the incident

The McDonald’s shooting sparked outrage among social media users across the country. They see the incident as another example of endemic police brutality.

The user wrote: ‘So disturbing that they then charged the guy with felonies after firing the officer and admitting he was wrong.’

Someone else chimed in: ‘This could have been my grandson. Enough is enough. I pray for Erik Cantù and his family because this should never have happened. This man should never have been a police officer. Stop giving these police officers guns and badges to kill our children.”

Subsequently, Brennand is said to have been fired from the San Antonio Police Department for violating officer training, procedures and tactics. Although it is not clear if he will face charges or not.
