According to the Police chief, police ordered Kinsey and the patient, who was sitting in the street playing with a toy truck, to lie on the ground. Kinsey lies down and puts his hands up while trying to get his patient to comply. An officer then fired three times, striking Kinsey in the leg. No weapon was found on Kinsey. According to the police they thought the toy truck was a gun.
Kinsey's attorney, Hilton Napoleon, showed a video to Miami Herald on Wednesday taken moments before the shooting. The video shows Kinsey lying in the middle of the street with his hands up, asking the officers not to shoot him, while the autistic man sits next to him, yelling at him to "shut up."
"Sir, there's no need for firearms," Kinsey said he told police before he was shot, according to the station. "It was so surprising. It was like a mosquito bite."
“When I went to the ground, I went to the ground with my hands up,” Kinsey said, “and I am laying there just like this. Telling them again there is no need for firearms. He is autistic. He has a toy truck in his hand.”Police ended up shooting Charles and he just doesn't know why. The case is under investigation..
