Haitian police shot and killed a man they suspected of stealing rice in earthquake-ravaged Port-au-Prince on Thursday, leaving his body on the sidewalk for hours as his family mourned.

The dead man’s mother identified him as Gentile Cherie, a 20-year-old carpenter. A companion with him was wounded, and a third man nearby was hit by what he said was a stray bullet.

Witnesses said no one was looting at the time. Josef Josnain, the owner of a shop near the city’s airport, said the five bags of rice the men were found with fell from a truck and passers-by picked them up. And Cherie’s wounded companion, who did not give his name, said a truck driver gave them the rice.

“A truck stopped and we jumped on, and the driver gave us the rice as a gift,” he said. “But the cops shot us.”
