Unarmed Black Teen Killed by Cleveland Police

Protests Planned After Fatal Police Shooting of Black Cleveland Teen

Eighteen-year-old Brandon Jones died on Thursday after a Cleveland Police Department officer shot him at approximately 2.15am earlier that day. Police were responding to reports of a break-in at Parkwood Grocery store when Jones walked out carrying a bag. Officers tried to arrest him and a struggle ensued, leading an officer to fire his gun, police said. Sergeant Ali Pillow, Cleveland police spokesman, said that no weapons were recovered at the scene and Cleveland city councilman Kevin Conwell said that community members believe the teenager was unarmed.

The deadly shooting in Cleveland comes amid a worsening relationship between police and Black communities in the US, following the high-profile deaths of unarmed Black men Michael Brown, 19, and Eric Garner, 43.
