Tempe Shooting: 14-year-old with a fatal shot with a pistol, writes the police chief
The Tempe police department freed cadres from the camera of the incident.
The officer, identified only as Jaen, was responding to a call from a suspect, reporting a suspicious car, and approached a gray pickup truck apparently involved in burglary. In a promenade, Tempe police chief Silvia Moar said at a press conference. The employee is heard calling the teen to raise his hands when he escapes from Jaen.
"He has a handgun," says Jaen to cadres. The pistol is a 1911 airsoft pistol replica that the teenager has just stolen from the truck, said Moore. He said there were other stolen items.
The teenager runs almost to the end of the driveway and the officer shoots two shots.
One of the shots hit him in the shoulder and the other hit the wall at the end of the driveway, said Moore. Authorities did not give cause for death.
A lawyer to the boy's family told the PNP that his relatives are in shock. "We're in the process of trying to figure out what's happened, the video is just one piece," said Danny Ortega. The family went to the police station and wanted to see footage. Ortega said the distance between the officer and the boy when he was shot seems significant.

Police officer Jaen has been in Tempe's police for 14 years and has been in the National Guard since 2007, serving in Iraq in 2011.
He is accommodated in administrative leave in anticipation of criminal and administrative investigations
Moir said the department focused on being "open, honest and empowered," but called "in "
Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell said he had joined the family to complain to their son, whom he identified as Antonio Arce.
" All young people have the promise of leading life to the meaning and contributing to greater good, "Mitchell said." When this potential is interrupted for some reason, it is a tragedy that can not be exaggerated. "He said the resources were devoted of additional training and he is looking forward but to continue to develop "understanding, cooperation and trust".
Mitchell also calls for careful discourse and behavior while the investigation is in progress. The body camera frames and the name of the policeman this afternoon will be increased carefully on this investigation. This study is understandable and justifiable. I would ask people to be patient as we learn the facts, "Mitchell said.
