Nathaniel Julius Statement

At the Global Down Syndrome Foundation (GLOBAL), we are simultaneously saddened and enraged by the tragic death of Nathaniel Julius, a 16-year-old with Down syndrome from Eldorado Park South Africa, who was shot and killed earlier this week during a police/gang-related shootout. Today, two officers involved in the shooting were arrested and charged with the murder of Nathaniel. We hope that the people responsible for this senseless killing are brought to justice. Our hearts go out to Nathaniel’s family, friends, and community during this difficult time.

*(As seen in GLOBAL’s social media on September, 1st). GLOBAL continues to follow the Nathaniel Julius case, as the now three suspected officers face the courts. We hope justice is served and our hearts go out to Nathaniel’s family and the community. See GLOBAL’s social media to keep up to date on this story.
