Ulysses Wilkerson's Brutal Beating Leads To Investigation Of Alabama Police Department

Ulysses Wilkerson's Brutal Beating Leads To Investigation Of Alabama Police Department

"You know, you hear about it in the media but I would have never thought that - I guess in Troy I never thought that it'd happen", Williams said.

Saying the first thing that came to mind was, "I hope they are not beating him". "Please share I'm heading to Birmingham to UAB he has fracture and had to transport to have surgery".

Troy is a city of about 19,000 people, some 50 miles south of the state capital of Montgomery.

According to police, Troy officers saw the teen walk from behind a closed downtown business just before midnight on Saturday. As the officers exited their patrol vehicle and approached, they say the subject fled on foot.

The investigation is still "open and active", Lt. Heath Carpenter told BuzzFeed News on Wednesday, though he could not confirm whether the police department had put any officers involved on leave. He was taken to a medical facility with serious injuries. "He looked like he was passed out or maybe in and out of consciousness." said Brittany Patterson, who drove by the scene. "You could tell that his face had a lot of bleeding".

Wilkerson's mother's Facebook post has been shared almost 100,000 times at the time of writing. Williams said police haven't shown the footage to her or her family and haven't spoken to them since her son was hospitalized. They say this is to protect the interest of the young person involved.

Local leaders from Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network are consulting with Wilkerson's family, according to a NAN spokesperson.

WDHN reached out to the Troy Police Department and to the Troy mayors office, neither would comment. On his Facebook page, Sadot Wilkerson has called for justice for his son using his son's moniker "FatDaddy".

District attorney Tom Anderson said there is police body camera footage of the incident, according to CNN. The post, includes graphic photos of the teenager, taken from the hospital.

Reeves' statement, which does not directly name Wilkerson, said that the juvenile was charged with obstructing governmental operations and resisting arrest, both of which are misdemeanors.

Officers at one Alabama police department are under investigation after gruesome photos of a 17-year-old boy lying on a hospital bed, bloodied from his run-in with Troy police, went viral. During the arrest, the teen was injured and transported to Troy Regional Medical Center, the statement said.

The incident is being reviewed by the State Bureau of Investigation (SBI), which sent officials to interview members of the Troy Police Department this week. Chief Barr's request was approved and Agents from SBI immediately responded to Troy, conducting interviews and collecting evidence.

SBI said they will not release any additional information at this time.

Attorney Ben Crump represents the family of Trayvon Martin, who was shot by George Zimmerman.
