DeKalb County Police Kill Man Diagnosed With Mental Disorder

Many are finding it hard to believe that 27-year-old Quintas “Shun” Harris’ cried out for help but received none when his mind was fighting him on that tragic night.

According to his parents, his mental health issues started when he was discharged from the Navy in 2011. He often said he felt he let everyone down. Eventually, Harris, a graduate of The Montgomery Job Corps Center and father of two, was diagnosed with health related illnesses; bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and PTSD.

Just hours before his tragic death by Dekalb County officers, he told his mother he was pursued by voices telling him people wanted to kill him. She pleaded with him to take his medicine. Just hours later during a mental health episode, he was killed.

Reginald Billups and Gebray Billups parents of Quintas “Shun” Harris gave an exclusive interview to Real Talk with Rashad Richey about their son and the actions they took to help him just hours before his death.

Listen below to the interview:
