A black teenager has been killed and a young black woman injured in a police shooting which is being investigated by authorities.

An officer opened fire while "investigating an occupied vehicle" in Wauken, about 42 miles north of Chicago, shortly before midnight on Tuesday.

Marcellis Stinnette, 19, died from gunshot wounds, according to a preliminary autopsy report released Thursday.

"We have been in close contact with Mr Stinnette's family and our deepest condolences go out to them during this difficult time," the coroner, Howard Cooper, said in a statement.

1. I would urge people to read the story

there seems to be more to it. Police need to find better ways to interact with people. Things escalate way to easily and people die needlessly.
