It was confirmed that the incident took place during a parade in Michigan and the officer involved started to shed tears at the scene of the incident.
Before the video went viral on social media, reports had it that the black girl who was in a vehicle at the time of the incident fired the first shots at the white police officer, he returned fire and the teen died as a result of her injuries.
Some black Americans didn't believe the report until the video went viral on social media. In the video, the officer was spotted ordering the teen to drop her weapon and step out of the vehicle but she refused. She fired the first shots at the police officer before he returned fire and fatally wounded her.
