Alton Sterling's friend "It's not a race issue, but they're making it a race issue'"
Investigators said the police shooting of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge likely contributed to the mass shooting of police officers in Dallas, TX overnight.

Those close to Sterling said violence against police is not the answer and not what they want.

"It's insane. It hurts to see other people going through what we're going through right now," said Quinyetta McMillon, who is the mother of Alton Sterling's oldest son, Cameron Sterling.

It's a pain McMillon understands all too well, the loss of a loved one.

Sterling was shot and killed early Tuesday morning by a Baton Rouge police officer. It's that shooting, the police chief in Dallas said, is likely behind the shooting of 12 police officers overnight.

"The suspect said he was upset about the recent police shootings. He said he was upset at white people. The suspect said he wanted to kill white people especially white officers," said Dallas Police Chief David Brown.

Kiran: "There's a small portion of the community out there nationally that will say, 'We got revenge. What would you say to that?'"
McMillon: "You don't."
Kiran: "Why?"
McMillon: "There's no revenge in that. You don't get revenge by going out and hurting someone else. It's not right. That's not how it works."

"If you are someone who can mourn the loss of Mr. Sterling and celebrate what happened in Dallas, you have transformed into the very thing you take issue with," said McMillon's lawyer Justin Bamberg.
