Bloody end for gun kid: Cop shoots armed 14-year-old dead in Bronx By KIRSTAN CONLEY and C.J. SULLIVAN Last Updated: 3:46 AM, August 5, 2013 Posted: 1:56 AM, August 5, 2013 An armed 14-year-old with a violent rap sheet was shot dead in The Bronx yesterday by a cop who had been on the job for less than a month, officials said. Surveillance video shows Shaaliver Douse, a suspected gang member, chasing and shooting at a young rival on Courtlandt Avenue near East 151st Street just before 3 a.m., police said. Two rookie cops on patrol heard the gunfire and ran over. The officers, both in uniform with weapons drawn, ordered Douse to drop his gun after he fired three shots at his foe, police said. Douse fired again, and the bullet hit a building on the side of the street where the cops were. Douseâ€™s rival was on the other side of the street, officials said. CUT DOWN: Shaaliver Douse, 14, was shot through the jaw yesterday, spattering his handgun with blood. One of the cops then fired a single shot, hitting Douse in the head through his jaw. The teen was pronounced dead at the scene. Police recovered a blood-spattered Astra A-100 9mm semiautomatic handgun, which they said was Douseâ€™s, at the scene. The officers, ages 26 and 27, were taken to Jacobi Medical Center for ringing in the ears and trauma. Both had been on the job less than a month. Speaking at Police Headquarters, NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly dismissed suggestions that the cops should have wounded the boy instead of killing him. â€œYou shoot to stop. You canâ€™t shoot to wound. That only happens in Western movies,â€ Kelly said. â€œRegardless of the circumstances, this is a crushing blow to any parent.â€ The cops were part of Operation Impact, which puts uniformed rookies in high-crime areas. Asked whether Douse was the youngest person ever shot dead by city cops, Kelly said, â€œI donâ€™t recall any other at this juncture. There may have been, I just donâ€™t recall.â€ Sources suggested Kelly made the rare Sunday press appearance at Police Headquarters because this was the cityâ€™s first shooting since neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman was cleared in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida last month. The verdict ignited outrage across the country. While cops said yesterdayâ€™s killing was justified, Douseâ€™s family was furious. â€œThere was no gun. Itâ€™s all a cover-up. Itâ€™s what the police do. They kill us and cover it up,â€ said his aunt, Quwana Barcene. Douse had been arrested in May on attempted-murder charges for allegedly shooting a 15-year-old, but the rap was dropped when the fearful victim wouldnâ€™t testify, sources said. Douse also had busts for robbery and weapons possession.
