The reaction to Antwon Rose II’s death, in photos and videos

Antwon Rose II was shot and killed by an East Pittsburgh police officer Tuesday, June 19, as he was fleeing a traffic stop. The officer, later identified as Michael H. Rosfeld, 30, of Penn Hills, stopped the car suspected to be involved in an earlier shooting in North Braddock.

Police found guns in the car, but Antwon, a 17-year-old Woodland Hills student, was unarmed when he was shot three times in the back. The shooting garnered national attention and sparked days of protests and demonstrations across Pittsburgh.
