Police in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida have refused to explain why an officer shot and killed a black man who was reportedly having car trouble over the weekend.

According to WPTV, Palm Beach Gardens Police have only said that one of its officers had shot a man at around 3:15 a.m. on a southbound exit ramp of I-95.

Family members confirmed that the man was 31-year-old Corey Jones, who is known in the community for playing drums in several local bands and churches.

“We don’t know where his body is, we don’t know what’s going on, all we know is someone knocked on the door and said this has happened,” WPEC was told by Ava Wright, a cousin of Jones.

Wright explained that Jones had called an older brother to report car problems while on the way home from a gig on Sunday morning. Jones reportedly said that he would need a ride home after calling a tow truck.

“The family needs some comfort,” Wright insisted. “He never got into any trouble; he was a very good kid.”

"Get the hell out!" one Trump supporter can be heard shouting. He and another older man were seen wagging their fingers

At least one Graham protester could be seen holding up a sign with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Graham is now being confronted with past comments he made saying that no president, regardless of the party, should make a Supreme Court pick right before his or her election.

According to the laughing Steele, there was "no way in hell" Graham was sincere when he made that pledge.

Asked by host Capehart about the Graham statement, Steele began, "No, I didn't believe it when he said it."

"Everyone is taking the people at their word," the former GOP executive explained. "There was no way in hell that a Supreme Court nomination opens up, it could open up the day before the election and Donald Trump and Lindsey Graham and everyone would be all on it."
