JUSTICE FOR TonyMcDade BlackLivesMatter

McDade's friend Royce Hall confirmed via Instagram DMs that McDade identified as a man.

According to Chief Lawrence Revell of the Talahassee Police Department, an officer reported “over the radio“ that McDade “had pointed a gun at him” and that “the suspect was in possession of a handgun, and a bloody knife was found at the scene.” These details were disclosed during a press conference concerning Dade’s death at the scene of the shooting. McDade had been pursued as the suspect of a stabbing earlier in the morning of May 27 that left one person dead.

While the officer who shot McDade has not been identified by local officials, Revell announced that the officer had been placed on paid administrative leave in the wake of McDade's death. Many around the country, however, are taking this time to recognize the killing as part of the tragic history of violence against Black transgender people in the United States.

While many activists have been vocal about memorializing McDade on social media and fighting against violence in his name, his erasure from some demonstrations across the country cannot be ignored.
