Jerame Reid was shot and killed by police officers during a traffic stop in Bridgeton, New Jersey, last Tuesday night.
According to the Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office, Officers Braheme Days and Roger Worley stopped a car in which Reid was one of the occupants.
At some point during the traffic stop, a handgun was found. However, prosecutors could not say what exactly led to the fatal shooting.
The scene was filmed by some bystanders, who yelled at police (video below).
"They shot [Reid]. They shot the boy ... He was trying to get back in the car," witness Ben Mosley told 6 ABC (video below). "I saw a disarmed man go down to the ground and get shot. That's exactly what I saw."
