Sylville Smith is a son, a father, a brother, and more. Whether or not he is a "gangbanger" or a "thug" is still up for discovery. Reports state Sylville Smith went to high school with the officer that shot him. Also, that Smith was a LEGAL CCW carrier since he was previously shot at twice, and robbed four times.

The officer was wearing a live, recording, fully functioning body camera during the incident and the footage may become public after the investigations are over.
