Cause of Death

A D.C. officer shot and killed the youthful man around 4 p.m., the Metropolitan Police Department declared in an online news announcement. Kay has shot about a half-mile apart from his home where he lived with his mom, The Washington Post reported.

Kay, who turned 18 last month, was identified by family members, the newspaper added.

Officers initially responded to a report of a man with a gun, the department indicated in the release. The authorities found several people in and around a car. Two of the “suspects” then fled on foot.

Kay brandished a gun during the pursuit and one of the officers “discharged their firearm one time, striking the suspect” in response, the release said.

The 18-year-old was transported by DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services to a nearby hospital where he was treated for his injuries, the department indicated in the release. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The other suspect was not recovered, The Washington Post added.

All officers who were involved have been placed on administrative leave per the department’s policy, it noted in its release.

The case is currently under investigation, officials added.

According to The Washington Post, a couple of city officials promised to release body camera footage of the encounter.

They told the newspaper that at least two officers are seen in the video approaching the described car in a parking lot. They also confirmed seeing the following “foot chase.”

Kay is then shown pulling a gun from his waist as an officer runs past the vehicle, the officials said.

Footage captured the other officer firing and striking the 18-year-old in the chest, The Post reported.

A Crowd of Protesters Seeking Justice

A crowd of protesters seeking justice for the 18-year-old began to gather around 8:30 p.m. outside of the police department, ABC7 reported.

Many chanted “move back” to the officers who came out to confront them, the station said.

One protester was heard saying, “You about to lose your job, because you’re killing us for no reason,” ABC7 documented.

The hashtag #JusticeForDeon started trending on Twitter the night of September 2 and into the following morning, with over 10,000 tweets.

Many users called for the defunding of police, while others contrasted Kay’s death to the police response of Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse.

Below are some of the responses:

One user expressed that police should be better trained in deescalating situations rather than resorting to violence, writing:

“I’m tired of demonizing victims of violence and justifications for murder. There is no reason the cops should be shooting someone, or exerting themselves physically. It is he has a criminal record. It if he even had a gun. No justification for being shot in the back. #DeonKay”
