Press Conference Regarding the Unjustified Shooting of Raymond Mattia by Customs and Border Protection

November 17, 2023 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Mr. Mattia's five siblings and two children submitted a written demand to CBP relating to Mr. Mattia's wrongful death on May 19, 2023. The edited body camera footage shows Mr. Mattia calmly interacting with agents in front of his home and complying with their demands. The agents ordered Mr. Mattia to take his hand out of his pocket and he complied, and the agents wrongfully fired a volley of over three dozen shots striking Mr. Mattia nine times and killing him in his front yard. The body camera footage plainly shows that Mr. Mattia posed no threat to the agents and there was no justification to shoot, much less shoot over three dozen rounds.

Mr. Mattia's death is a tragedy that harmed his family and community greatly, and his family plans to hold CBP accountable for the outrageous killing of their beloved family member.

WHAT/WHO: Press Conference / Attorneys Timothy A. Scott and Ryan W. Stitt along with members of Mr. Mattia's family.
