His death has led to protests by the community of Eldorado Park, as well as social media users demanding for justice under the hashtag #JusticeForNathanielJulius.

"What explanation is there for killing this child in cold blood, in the street like his life is worth absolutely nothing? SAPS you are supposed to protect these lives, not take them away. God bless Nathaniel Julius and his family,” AKA lashed out.
