A police officer shot and killed a 14-year-old boy on a street early Sunday after he refused to drop his gun and pointed it in the direction of officers. Shaaliver Douse was chasing and shooting at another young man when two police officers saw him.
The officers ordered Douse to drop the gun but instead he fired another round. Douse died of a single gunshot to his jaw after the confrontation in the Melrose section of the Bronx.
In May Douse was charged with attempted murder after a 15-year-old boy was shot in a Bronx neighborhood where Douse lived. Douse was also charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and menacing in connection to the incident.
The Bronx District Attorney’s Office deferred Douse’s prosecution.
