ATLANTA (AP) — The mother of an Air Force airman who was fatally shot in the doorway to his home by a Florida

sheriff’s deputy said Monday that the deputy’s firing was not justice for her son’s killing.

Enchantment Fortson spoke at a news conference in Atlanta accompanied by her attorney, Ben Crump, who said the firing of Okaloosa County Deputy Eddie Duran was a “step forward,” but that Duran should also be charged in Senior Airman Roger Fortson’s killing.

Sheriff Eric Aden fired Duran on Friday, about a month after he shot and killed Roger Fortson while responding to a domestic violence call and being directed to Fortson’s apartment.
