Tyre King. 2003-2016.



Tyre King (c. 2003-2016), known as Tyree King in early police and press reports, is an American schoolboy who was gunned down by police this past Wednesday, at 7.45pm on September 14th 2016, in Columbus, Ohio. He was armed with a BB gun (airgun). He was Black, the killer cop was White.

CORRECTS NAME FROM TYREE KING TO TYRE KING - Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs holds up a photo showing the type of BB gun that police say a 13-year-old boy pulled from his waistband just before he was shot and killed by police investigating an armed robbery report, on Thursday, Sept. 15, 2016 in Columbus, Ohio.

Police say King’s gun looked just like a police gun and that he pulled it on them. Based on what we know so far, it seems more likely the police are lying than that a 13-year-old boy pulled a BB gun on police.

The family’s lawyerssay “numerous” witness accounts conflict with the police account. Demetrius Braxton, King’s friend who was there, said King was running away when police shot him.

There is no video, at least not yet. Columbus police are allowed to carry guns without a body camera.
