Family members of a well-liked Connecticut Muffin barista prepared to turn up the heat on as the result of being hit by a police car earlier this month.
The mother of Tamon Robinson will join Rev. Al Sharpton at a National Action Network rally Saturday in Harlem to call for justice for the 27-year-old coffee shop employee, according to attorney Sanford Rubenstein.
Robinson died last Wednesday from injuries sustained after a chase with police on April 12 at Bayview Houses in Canarsie.
In the wake of his death, questions continued to mount about the incident, which occurred after police encountered Robinson carrying away paving stones to be sold to construction sites as part of a side business.
"I don’t know how we go from someone being chased by the police to someone getting hit by a police vehicle operated by the police officer that was chasing him," Rubenstein told Patch on Tuesday.
Witnesses are currently being interviewed by the Brooklyn District Attorney's office as part of an ongoing investigation, according to Rubenstein.
The Brooklyn DA would not comment on whether the driver of the car that hit Robinson was on the list of witnesses to be interviewed.
Funeral services for Robinson will take place on Friday.
The NAN rally will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday at the House of Justice, 106 145th St. at Malcolm X Boulevard in Harlem.
