After being shot by police, an 82-year-old "granddaddy" battled for his life for two months, but succumbed to his injuries and died. Melvin Bouler, according to his family, is partly deaf and couldn't understand police orders, so one officer filled him with holes. We now hear, a year and a half later, that the cop who murdered Bouler will not face charges. According to police, they responded to a complaint of a guy with a pistol on a Sunday afternoon on November 17, 2019. Melvin Bouler, 82, was reportedly getting into his vehicle and driving away when police arrived. As ABC 7 reported, Adjanay Okoe is not a biological relative of Bouler, but he has looked after her since she was a toddler and considers himself to be her grandpa. She said that he was visiting her mother when he became embroiled in an altercation with her mother's boyfriend, who then phoned the cops. However, she said that he was already being assisted into his vehicle to return home when police arrived
