People Call for Justice for Antwon by Justin Merriman

People take to the streets of Pittsburgh in the days following the police killing of an unarmed black male. 17-year-old Antwon Rose II was shot by an East Pittsburgh police officer on June 19 after the vehicle he was riding in was stopped by police. Rose, a passenger in the car, fled the vehicle during the traffic stop, and was shot three times by Officer Michael Rosfeld who has been charged with criminal homicide. (Photo by Justin Merriman/Getty Images)
