Update: Fundraiser for Hmong victim’s family in Warren

Below is an update about some organizing efforts relating to the Hmong youth who was shot 27 times by Warren police.

On September 17, 18 year old Chon Buri Xiong was fatally shot 27 times in his home by Warren police. The Xiong family has suffered a great tragedy and is very upset about the incident. However, the Macomb County Prosecutor has closed the case, stating that the police officers were justified in their actions. The Xiong Family’s side of the story has not been taken seriously by the authorities, or by the media which has only written from the police perspective. The Xiong family needs money to help cover funeral and housing expenses. Every donation will contribute greatly.
