January 30, 2022

According to Joyner, police arrived before any human had called 911. Joyner says he never lost consciousness and saw Oakland police cars roll up quickly, despite not hearing any witnesses call police. Shortly after Joyner had been shot, his daughter texted Ralph Clark, CEO of ShotSpotter. “Hey thank you so much, Ralph,” she wrote. “We think ShotSpotter might have played a role in saving my dad’s life.”
