A Tennessee white Woman called Police on Black Teen Who Was Dating Her Daughter; He Was Shot dead by white police while inside the bathroom

Last week, The Root reported that 17-year-old Anthony J. Thompson Jr. was shot and killed by police officers in the restroom of Austin-East Magnet High School in Knoxville, Tenn.

Law enforcement officials originally reported that before he was killed, Anthony shot one of the officers who had gone into the restroom with their guns drawn, but later they corrected the report saying the bullet that hit the officer didn’t come from Anthony’s gun.

Knox News reports that, according to Regina Perkins, the mother of Anthony’s girlfriend Alexus Page, the two teens were involved in a toxic relationship that had escalated to the point where there were physical fights. She also said that, despite the volatile relationship, she considered Anthony to be a “good kid” who didn’t deserve to die the way he did.
