On October 26, 2020, there was a 911 call to the 6100 block of Locust Street, where Walter Wallace, Jr. was suffering from a mental health crisis. Unfortunately, the incident ended in the fatal shooting of Mr. Walter Wallace, Jr. He was 27 years old.
We at SeniorLAW Center will continue to work towards addressing potential implicit biases and advocate for access to mental health. We support the exercise of peaceful protest and first amendment rights. Let us be the voice for Mr. Wallace, Jr. and the far too many that have suffered the loss of their family and community members. Let’s fight together to ensure no more lives are lost.
On behalf of SeniorLAW Center, we send our deepest condolences to the Wallace family and will do our part to bring healing to our City of Philadelphia. As always, Black Lives Matter.
