Police shoot, kill 17-year-old boy who fled traffic stop
EAST PITTSBURGH, Pa. – Authorities say police shot and killed a 17-year-old boy during a traffic stop that followed a shooting in western Pennsylvania.
The initial shooting occurred around 8:20 p.m. Tuesday in North Braddock. Responding officers found a 22-year-old man who had been shot, and he was taken to a hospital and later released.
Witnesses reported seeing a vehicle flee the scene, and a car matching that vehicle’s description was stopped a short time later in East Pittsburgh. The car’s driver was taken into custody, but the 17-year-old boy and another occupant ran from the vehicle.
The teen was shot a short time later, but further details have not been disclosed. His name has not been released.
The other male who ran from the car remained at large Wednesday.
