Najee Seabrooks was a Paterson violence intervention activist who was killed by Paterson police officers on Friday, March 3rd.

Najee was having a mental health crisis when police arrived at his home. The police presence turned his health crisis into a 5-hour standoff. Family and friends begged police to let them talk to Najee to help resolve the situation themselves. Police refused to leave and insisted that they were professionals and could handle it. Najee was not armed with a gun of any kind. The situation ended with police shooting and killing Najee, using deadly force on a man that should’ve been taken to a mental health institution for treatment.
