Protesters joined the annual Juneteenth parade in Pittsburgh on Saturday, June 23, in the wake of the fatal police shooting of an unarmed 17-year-old by police in East Pittsburgh last week. It was the fourth day of protests since Antwon Rose’s death.
Juneteenth celebrates the abolition of slavery in the American south, which took place on June 19, 1865.
Rose was shot on Tuesday, June 19, when he ran from a vehicle involved in a traffic stop in East Pittsburgh. The vehicle had been stopped on suspicion of being involved in a shooting, and police arrested the driver as Rose ran from the vehicle. Police have said Rose was unarmed at the time of the shooting, and Michael Rosfeld was identified as the officer involved. Credit: kno_me_saymoan via Storyful
