Less than five minutes after leaving her house, he was in handcuffs, lying facedown in the middle of Columbia Street with an Adams Police officer pointing a gun at him.He and his mother, Jodi Chappell, are convinced that it was an incident of racial profiling and intend to file a complaint. Adams Police Chief Richard Tarsa denies that any of his officers acted out of bigotry or racial profiling; he said they were responding appropriately in the tense moments after a violent crime. Wednesday, there was a call to 911 of shots fired near 30 North Summer, just around the corner from Chappell’s mother’s house.The victim was hospitalized with several gunshot wounds, and police began to look for suspects.A radio alert was issued by Adams Police; a copy was obtained by the North Adams Police Department.It reads: “Massachusetts State Police advises three parties involved [in shooting]. Shooter is said to be black male wearing red jacket. . Left in a beige Toyota 4 door with five parties inside. Said to be loud. Second black male is said to be wearing a black sweatshirt, has a beard and long hairstyle, possibly an afro.”The Berkshire County Sheriff’s Office also issued a bulletin, seeking help locating a “beige Toyota Celica with a loud exhaust, unknown plate, unknown direction, with 2 black males and one white male.”In an interview with The Eagle, Chappell said he didn’t realize what happened as he drove by the shooting scene on the way to the gas station. He noticed that as soon as one of the officers saw his face, two cruisers pulled out and followed him.Chappell said he was wearing a red baseball cap and a white, red and blue North Face jacket. He has short hair and a close cropped beard and was driving a taupe Chevrolet Equinox SUV.He stopped at the stop sign at Cook and Columbia streets, and when he started to turn left toward the gas station, the two cruisers turned on their emergency lights and, through a public address system, ordered him to pull over.He watched as the officer in the lead car got out, stood behind his own door and pointed his gun toward him.Chappell said he followed instructions to show his hands, turn off the car, open the door and get out with his hands in the air. At one point, he said he was pointedly ordered not to look at the police officer pointing a gun at him. He then followed instructions to get on his knees and lie facedown in the street.He was handcuffed, searched and put into the back seat of a cruiser, where he sat for about 20 minutes while police searched his mother’s car.”One officer was very aggressive in the way he was talking to me,” Chappell recalled. “For him, I was the shooter, and he didn’t treat me any other way.”Chappell said the officers knew him by name, although he didn’t know them. Then the officers asked him if he recognized a name of the man they were seeking, and wondered if Chappell knew anything about him. He said he didn’t.After the questioning, police removed the handcuffs and told Chappell he was free to go. He said they never told him why he was stopped and detained.Several photographs of the incident were posted on social media Wednesday. One shows Chappell standing in the street with his hands in the air as two officers approach him, at least one holding a gun pointed at Chappell. Another photo shows an officer within feet of Chappell, pointing a gun at him as he kneels in the street.Police chief respondsIn an interview with The Eagle on Friday, Tarsa denied that his officers were reacting to Chappell’s skin color, but rather to a high risk search for a possibly active shooter who might have still been in the neighborhood.”The description of the individual matched the clothing, and they were looking for a light skinned black male,” Tarsa said. “He drove right by the scene shortly after the incident. I can assure you it’s not true they did not stop him simply because he is black.”Tarsa noted that police were seeking an armed and possibly dangerous suspect.”It was a high risk situation, and they handled it accordingly,” Tarsa said. “They reacted in a safe, effective and efficient manner to protect the individual and the public.”
