An officer in training has shot and killed Christian Taylor, a college football player, who was unarmed during his car incident.

The police responded reports on Friday saying that the unarmed college football player drove his car through the glass doors of a car dealership.

"The Arlington Police Department has no video of the incident because the department has not yet put in place a pilot program in which officers will wear body cameras, said a police spokesman, Sgt. Paul Rodriguez. It also was unclear whether the dealership's security cameras captured what happened." via USAToday

An altercation occurred between the suspect and officers, and at least one of the officers discharged his weapon.

"Officers established a perimeter and approached the suspect inside," he said. "As officers confronted the suspect, there was an altercation during which at least one officer discharged his weapon."

Taylor, 19, died at the scene.
