WASHINGTON DC — Individuals are protesting outside a police station in Southeast DC after a deadly officer involved shooting.

This all comes after an officer shot an African American man Wednesday afternoon.

Officers approached a car after receiving information that the people inside might be armed. Some people in the car ran from the scene and one officer opened fire, killing one of them.

He hasn't been identified by name, but neighbors say he just turned 18.

Several guns were found at the scene of the shooting and the man who was shot was believed to be armed.
