*An African American teen was shot and killed in a case of mistaken identity. Darrius Stewart had been riding in a car with a broken headlight when officer Connor Schilling pulled him over. Stewart was then placed in the back of the cops’ car over numerous outstanding warrants.
Only thing is, the warrants didn’t belong to him.
According to investigators when Schilling went to handcuff Stewart, the teen kicked the door and attacked the officer. He is said to have then grabbed the officers handcuffs and began swinging them at him. Schilling claims he then shot Stewart to end the fight.
Stewart was taken to Regional Medical Center in critical condition, and died shortly thereafter. Schilling was treated at the scene for minor scratches and bruises.
