Members of two communities are searching for answers after a 16-year-old Black male was fatally gunned down by police.

The teen, identified as Aries Clark, was shot by Marion, Arkansas, police on Tuesday outside of an emergency juvenile shelter, just 10 miles outside of Memphis, Tennessee. Officers reported to East Arkansas Youth Services around 7:08 p.m., prompting a message “moments later,” that the teen Clark was shot by police.

Clark, a Memphis resident, succumbed to gunshot wounds after he was transported to a nearby hospital.

Vicky Clark, the victim’s mother, said the family was at the center to find therapy option for Clark, a student at  West Memphis High School.

The Marion Police Department has not released any information regarding what led to the outcome. According to Little Rock outlet KATV, two officers have been placed on administrative leave, but their names have yet to be released. The department has launched a criminal investigation into the matter.

In a statement obtained by KATV, the Department of Human Services issued a statement following the teen’s death, saying, “Our condolences go out to the family of the youth who died and our thoughts are with all involved.”

    It’s being reported that he had a gun and refused to drop it when ordered to do so by police. Surprised anyone? Nope, let’s move on Peeps

    A cave n!@@er killed another a cave n!@@er with a badge in Indiana. He was taken alive. Yet these Neanderthal apes murder unarmed black men, women and children. They should have never been let out of the caves of Europe.

    Sure he had some issues in the past, but that was all behind him. He was a good kid, well liked in the neighborhood and at school. Shaneesta Diamond Jenkins, a classmate at Booker T. High School, shared her thoughts. He aint never give nobody no trouble. Aries was a role model, he told me he wanted to go to college to be an astronaut. He always got good grades compared to me, and all the teachers liked him when he was in class. I just can’t image how this shit happened. It had to be racist white police. We gonna protest tonight wid my gurls. After I get my nails and weave hooked-up.
