Police Killing

Police fatally shot a 6-year-old child, making Jeremy Mardis the youngest person to be killed by police this year and proving that police practices across the board should be examined, no matter which communities they serve.

Tyrone Howard reportedly dropped to his knees at his arraignment Wednesday night after being charged with first-degree murder and robbery. Howard was on the run since Sept. 1 for a drug-related shooting in the Lower East Side and escaped police ten times.
