Officers arriving at the scene saw three people matching the suspects' descriptions around a block away. However, when they attempted to speak with them, two of the males ran away, police said.I'm assuming the deceased teenager was an African American person of color... otherwise why would this police shooting be compared to other police shootings involving African Americans persons of color.

King was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 8:22 p.m.
The incident in Columbus comes almost two years after 12-year-old Tamir Rice was shot dead by a police officer in Cleveland.So, I guess we are about to go on a merry go round again. Brace yourselves.
Rice, a black sixth-grade student, was holding a pellet gun when the officer shot him within two seconds of arriving at the scene.
