Wilkinsburg Strong Peace March aims to stop violence in borough, and demand transparency in Romir Talley death

THE FAMILY OF ROMIR TALLEY—Romir Talley, a 24-year-old Black male, was shot and killed by Wilkinsburg police in December 2019, after police were called to a scene where a man was allegedly threatening another person with a gun. Wilkinsburg police say they shot Talley after he fired a shot at them first—the Talley family, however, wants more transparency into all the details that transpired. The Allegheny County DA’s office said the case is under review.
