BRAZOS COUNTY, TX — Right now, all eyes are on Killeen as we learn more about the officer involved shooting, that claimed the life of Bryan-native, Patrick Warren Sr.

Ebony Peterson, the co-founder of the Black Lives Matter chapter in Bryan/ College Station, has had brief interactions with Patrick Warren Senior, but knows his son, Patrick Warren Junior better. She considers Warren Jr. an activist, who often volunteered to DJ organization events.

"To personally know the family, and to see what's going on, it's just like, 'Ok. This has hit too close to home, so I know I have to work harder," Ebony Peterson, co-founder of the BLM Bryan/ College Station chapter said.

The local chapter is hosting a peaceful protest this weekend to show their support.

"We stand behind them, and beside them, and to let them know that we support them one thousand percent," Peterson said.

Calling for justice, and accountability, for anyone that played a role in the events; the situation leading up to Warren Senior being fatally shot by an officer during a mental health call.

"We don't even know what was going on, you know what I am saying. But the family realized that something wasn't right, and for them to call for help, and not get help, that's just sad," Peterson added.

Hoping the world will see Warren Seniors' character. Peterson had this to share with 25 News KRHD.

"What I do know, is that he was a true man of God. He was a husband. A good husband. He was a father. A good father. He was a really good man," Peterson said.

The peaceful protest will be held on Saturday, from 2- 6 p.m. at 29th and Texas ave.
