This is the 18 year old young man who
was shot dead  Dec. 23rd by a police officer at a gas station
not far from where Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri. But
the police say this is a totally different case because Antonio Martin
had a gun and pointed it at 34yr old unnamed officer, who pulled out his
own gun and shot three times, killing Antonio.

the police officer as the officer responded to a call of a theft in the
area. The police officer fired three shots, one hitting the teen.
Antonio, who didn’t fire his weapon, was pronounced dead at the scene by responding EMS officers. 
During a press conference later, the police said Antonio was known to them and had previous charges including three assaults,
armed robbery, armed criminal action and multiple uses of weapons since
he was 17.
