Hundreds gathered outside of the East Pittsburgh Police Department Wednesday evening to protest the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teen who was running away from officers when he was killed.

Antwon Rose II, a Woodlands High School honor student and rising senior was shot three times while running from a vehicle that had been stopped because it matched the description of a car potentially connected to a drive-by shooting earlier that night.

Rose was pronounced dead at the hospital.
