19 Year Old Highschool Football Player Killed By Police

Dyzhawn Perkins, 19, was an All State offensive lineman at Buckingham County Highschool in Virgina. On Saturday he was shot and killed by two Sheriff’s Deputies. The incident occurred around 1pm on Saturday. Police responded to a call that the teenager was “behaving erratically” at a local supermarket. When the two Buckingham County police officers found Perkins at his home nearby, he reportedly jumped through a plate-glass window and began fighting with one of the officers. That’s when officers fired on the teen. Perkins died at the scene.
