A community in Paterson, New Jersey, is mourning the loss of Naji Seabrooks, a well-known anti-violence activist who was fatally shot by police during an hour-long standoff on March 3.

Seabrooks, who was experiencing a mental health crisis at the time, had barricaded himself in an apartment bathroom with knives when police arrived.

Despite the efforts of Crisis Intervention-trained officers to help him, Seabrooks lunged at officers with a knife and was shot and killed.

His funeral, attended by friends, family, and loved ones, was a cry for justice and a call for changes to prevent such tragedies from happening again.

The community is left grappling with how to move forward after such a devastating loss.
