Osborn Machler Issues Statement on Behalf of John Winkler's Family

SEATTLE --(Business Wire)--

The following statement was issued by Craig Dawson, John Winkler's uncle, on behalf of the Winkler family. John Winkler died after L.A. sheriff's deputies mistakenly shot him as he fled from an attacker.

"John was a kind, funny, smart young man, with a bright wit and kind word for anyone he met. We are grasping to understand why he was taken away from us in such a tragic way.

"Those who were blessed with the opporunity to know John knew him to be an incredibly giving young man, always ready to do anything for friends and family. It is no surprise to us that he put his own life at risk to help a friend. This is exactly the quality that made him a very special soul.

"We want to thank those around us for the outpouring of love and support shared with our family at this very trying time.

"Moving forward, we seek to understand the reasons why the sheriff's deputies shot and killed John. We know that shooting and killing an innocent man must be a horrible burden for those deputies, and they are in our prayers as well, as they attempt to cope with the circumstances of his death.

"We ask that the media respect our privacy as we attempt to deal with John's death."
