Protests in Washington after police fatally shoot 18-year-old

Bennie Garza | 04 September, 2020, 16:24

Police released a statement on Wednesday evening identifying the 18-year-old as Deon Kay and said that they had recovered two guns from the shooting incident.

"Our community is hurting, and we know that they want answers", Bowser said at a press briefing Thursday.

On Thursday, police released body camera footage that showed Kay brandishing a gun during the altercation. Officials revealed Thursday the officer who shot Kay is Alexander Alvarez, who joined the MPD in 2018. Officials say Kay threw the gun almost 100 feet away, though it's unclear from the footage if the teenager threw the gun before or after being shot.

The video showed officers approaching the vehicle before one passenger jumps out and runs away.

Police Chief Peter Newsham said: 'Uniformed police officers had information that there were guys in the neighborhood with guns, specifically. "I'm pretty sure that Deon Kay fell through multiple safety nets before yesterday afternoon".

At that point, one of the officers fired once, striking Kay in the chest and killing him. "As a response, an MPD officer just distanced his service weapon, firing a single shot".

In connection to the incident, "19-year-old Marcyelle Smith, of Southeast, DC, was found to be in possession of a handgun, He was arrested and charged for Carrying a Pistol Without a License and 18-year-old Deonte Brown, of Southeast, DC was arrested and charged with No Permit", police officials said. "I know that he's a validated gang member from the area and I know that he's had multiple touches with the criminal justice system".

You can check out the body cam footage but, be warned, it is graphic. The legislation passed amid protests over police brutality after the death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody. "There is a lot of work yet to be done before we come up with any conclusions". But it's unclear whether Kay, who had officers in front and back of him, was intending to use the weapon or throw it away. "Misinformation can lead potentially to some disturbances in our city, and that's the last thing that we wanted to see". "What I know is that our officer was trying to take guns off the street and what I know is that he encountered somebody with a gun".

During the footage, the second officer can be heard talking to a dispatcher about a suspect that had allegedly fled on foot.

Following news of the police-involved shooting, protesters gathered outside of the Seventh District police station Wednesday night.
