Our New York office’s managing partner, Attorney Sean Hayes is representing, pro bono, the family of Carlos Lopez who was killed in 2003 by NYPD. According to the family of Mr. Lopez, NYPD undercover police officers responding to a shooting mistook Mr. Lopez as the perpetrator of the shooting. Witnesses noted that Mr. Lopez was not involved in the shooting, no gun was found on Mr. Lopez, no gun residue was found on Mr. Lopez and Mr. Lopez was not wearing clothes similar to a person fleeing the scene of the crime.
In a News 12 interview, Attorney Hayes confirmed that new evidence was obtained that will prove that Carlos Lopez is innocent and that he was wrongfully killed.
“It was said that someone was fleeing the scene with a black hoodie on, so I think what probably happened here is that police shot the wrong person and had multiple people saying that there was a man leaving the scene with a black hoodie. We don’t have a man that was just shot with a black hoodie and what I think they did… they found a black hoodie. It’s very strange there are no bullet holes,”Sean Hayes
“What we want is an investigation and a full one. Everyone jumped to the belief that Carlos was the perpetrator of the crime. And there’s so much evidence that he’s not the perpetrator but everyone jumped to that,” Attorney Hayes added.
