The family of a teen killed during a scuffle with an off-duty Baltimore County police officer is holding a fundraiser and petition drive later Wednesday.
Officer James Laboard says he chased Christopher Brown after rocks were thrown at his home in Randallstown back in June.
Witnesses say Brown did not throw the rocks.
After an internal investigation, Laboard was charged with one count of manslaughter and one count of involuntary manslaughter.
Brown’s family wants stiffer chargers brought against him.
The fundraiser and petition drive goes from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the IHOP on Liberty Road in Randallstown.
