Hundreds of Protesters Block Pittsburgh Street After Police Shooting
Protesters blocked a major roadway following the shooting death of 17-year-old Antwon Rose.
Hundreds of protesters called for justice after police killed Antwon Rose, an unarmed black teenager earlier this week. The protesters blocked a major roadway in the Pittsburgh area before they dispersed peacefully.
Rose, 17, was shot and killed by an East Pittsburgh police officer as he ran from a vehicle after it was stopped by police. The officers were searching for suspect in an earlier drive-by shooting, police said earlier this week.
The death of Rose was the latest in a string of killings of black men by police that have triggered street protests and fueled a renewed national debate about bias in the U.S. criminal justice system.
