The driver of the vehicle refused to comply with the officers’ requests to get out of the vehicle. Police say he again tried to hit officers with the vehicle, and narrowly missed.
Officers fired at the car, striking the driver, who got out of the vehicle with a handgun and then immediately collapsed. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Family members and police identified the deceased as 15-year-old Andre Green.
