LIMA, Ohio — The death of Tarika Wilson during a drug raid has left tensions here simmering between minorities and police.
Wilson, 26, was fatally shot and her 1-year-old son was wounded when SWAT officers burst into her home looking for her boyfriend.
Black clergy leaders are nervously waiting for investigators to decide whether to charge the veteran officer who fired the fatal shots. The officer is white, the victims black.
"This was ready to blow," said Daniel Hughes, one of several pastors who has been preaching patience while residents demand more answers about the shooting. "It still could go either way."
More than two weeks have passed since the Jan. 4 death of Wilson, a 26-year-old mother of six. Her baby son, Sincere Wilson, was wounded and had a finger amputated.
