There has been an increase in mass shootings as well as shootings by the police in recent days and these tragic events have garnered much attention from the media. On Tuesday, a cop shot and killed a teen in Pittsburgh, and the victim is a high school student named Antwon Rose. The teen was shot by a cop, who was just hours in on the duty in suburban Pittsburgh. The unarmed teen was shot by the officer, whose identity has not been yet revealed, because Antwon was a passenger in a car that had been suspected of being involved in a shooting earlier. The officer had ordered the diver out of the car and onto the car but Antwon and the other passenger ran away from the car, and the East Pittsburgh officer opened fire, which struck Antwon. Antwon Rose was a 17 year old teen from Rankin. His full name is confirmed to be Antwon Rose II. After being taken to the hospital, he was pronounced dead, and that has sparked protests in East Pittsburgh.
The officer that had shot him has been put in administrative leave and an objective investigation is being carried out, as per the Allegheny County authorities. The officer had fired three times, each time striking Antwon.
