Although Seneca Police Chief John Covington has accused Hammond of causing his own death, Covington’s son merely received probation with time served.

On July 26, Seneca Police Lt. Mark Tiller ran towards Zachary Hammond’s car with his gun drawn as Hammond’s date, Tori Morton, was allegedly selling a few grams of marijuana to an undercover cop. According to Chief Covington, Hammond drove toward Lt. Tiller in an attempt to murder him. Fearing for his life, Tiller shot Hammond twice at point blank range killing him. But according to witness statements and Hammond’s autopsy, Hammond was not attempting to run down Tiller in the moments before the shooting.

After reviewing the incident, the Hammond family’s attorney, Eric Bland, asserts that Hammond was shifting his car into park when someone shouted that Hammond had a gun. Hammond’s vehicle wasn’t moving when Lt. Tiller’s bullets tore into his body
