Toy giveaway set for Saturday in Wilkinsburg to honor Romir Talley – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 2020-12-19 10:33:00 –

The people behind the movement called “Justice for Lomir” will sprinkle Christmas cheers on Saturday. 1Hood Media, Take Action Mon Valley, and Pittsburgh I Can’t Breathe and Alliance for Police Accountability have organized a toy gift to remind you of 24-year-old Romir Talley. The event will take place at Wilkinsburg’s Community Forge from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm. “I think it’s great to raise his name in this way,” said Kyan James. “That’s what he wanted to do and he was deeply involved in the community.” Next Tuesday will be a year after Tally’s death. Wilkinsburg police officer Robert Gowans shot Tally near Penn Avenue and Wood Street last December. Investigators said someone called 911 and reported a man threatening another with a gun. Police claimed that Tally fired at Gowans. Family lawyers disputed this, saying it was a false identity case by police. “What we have now is a family quest to find an answer to understand what happened,” said Miracle Jones. The shooting is still under investigation. Gowans went to work at the desk in September. He has not been charged with Tally’s death. “We can’t stop, we won’t stop until we get the answer from the Tally family,” Jones said. Jones works with 1HoodMedia. She told Pittsburgh Action News 4 via Zoom that several groups had organized a five-day action this month to honor Romer. James is working with the alliance for police accountability. He explained how a toy drive on Saturday makes sense for Tally’s family, especially his mother. “I think she’s very pleased that we’re still raising her son’s name,” James said. “No one has forgotten about him.”
