The shooting took place at 9:25 a.m. in the 5000 block of Beacon Avenue; the department posted a tweet revealing that the boy shot was in stable condition and being held at the hospital.

Fortunately no officers were injured or killed.

Dotson revealed to reporters at the scene that officers had been probing the area for a car taken in a carjacking late last month. After a short chase, Dotson said, the officers stopped and attempted to talk to at least one teen walking on Lillian Avenue. The teen bolted, turned and ran through a vacant lot near Walbridge Elementary School before squeezing off one shot before officers returned fire, Dotson said.

The two officers involved are white; the teen is black, which will no doubt cause BLM to switch back to the ‘all WHITE cops are racist murderers’ narrative. The boy was taken to the hospital and is in critical, but stable condition; he was conscience and able to speak. Dotson shared that witnesses spoke with police and shared that they heard the pursuing officers identify themselves as police and order the teen to get down.

Police located the teen’s semiautomatic pistol where the shot had been fired and were looking for the shell casing in the vacant lot, Dotson said.

Dotson continued:

“A 14-year-old with a gun I think really goes to the conversation about the epidemic of violence that we have in our community. That a 14 year-old has access to a gun or feels the need to have a gun, and certainly when officers approach, running or pointing that gun at officers, it does nobody in the community any good.”
