One year ago today, an police shooting rocked the Inglewood community.

It was a little after 3 o'clock in the morning when Inglewood Police officers responded to a report of an occupied vehicle parked along Manchester Boulevard. 

It's a road that's usually busy, but that morning things were quiet. Inside the car a man and woman: 32-year-old Marquintan Sandlin and 31-year-old Kisha Michael. Officers who approached the car found the couple unconscious, but then they saw something else: a gun. 

Little is know about the events that transpired over the next 45 minutes. What is known is that Sandlin and Michael were both shot dead by police. 

Both were single parents with seven children between them.

In the days that followed, friends and loved ones would search for answers, but there were few.

So where does the case stand today?
