Nouman Raja: Cop who shot Corey Jones moves kids out of house following an email he received

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla - Nouman Raja, the former Palm Beach Gardens police officer who shot and killed Corey Jones, was concerned for the safety of his family following an email he received a day after the shooting.

Emails obtained by WFLX FOX 29 show that on Oct. 19 at 10:30 p.m. Raja received an email from a “concerned citizen’ verbally accosting him.

As a precaution FOX 29 has chosen not to release the email address of the “concerned citizen”.

The email contains a picture of a Police officer carrying a pig with the text "Stop I'm one of you."

Twenty minutes after receiving the message Raja forwards the email to a union representative writing:

The union rep responding to Raja’s email advises him to contact Officer Buntin within the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department, who in turn forwards the email to several others for their information suggesting that maybe they should take Raja’s email off line.

It is not clear whether or not his email was actually taken off line.

Raja was fired on Thursday, Nov. 12.

Investigations into the shootings are carried out by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, the FBI and the Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office.

No charges have been filed against Nouman Raja at this time.
