18-Year Old Shot 20 Times By Cops Over Hairbrush

A young man was fatally shot last night in a hail of 20 bullets fired by five police officers who responded to his mother’s 911 call for help in a domestic dispute in Brooklyn, the authorities said.

The police said they believed that the man, Khiel Coppin, 18, had a gun. But when the gunfire stopped, it turned out that he had been holding a hairbrush.

The cops fired 20 shots before they realized it was a hairbrush! A hairbrush! And according to the witness, he dropped the hairbrush before they started firing. It's not even safe for a mother to call the cops on her own son without the risk of them killing her kid. And the slap in the face is this:

The police said they were also exploring the possibility that Mr. Coppin was trying to prompt a shooting, a phenomenon known as “suicide by cop.”
