Calif. teen, apparently unarmed, fatally shot by police

FRESNO, Calif. -- Police responding to reports of a man armed with a rifle shot and killed a 19-year-old California man who was apparently unarmed Saturday afternoon, reports CBS affiliate KGPE.

The Fresno Police Department said two officers attempted to pull over Dylan Noble as he drove his pickup truck round 3:20 p.m. Saturday, but Noble did not stop his vehicle for about half a mile.

Noble stopped his car at a Chevron gas station, and police said he then got out of his car with one of his arms behind his back, according to the Fresno Bee. The officers said that Noble yelled that he hated his life, before moving his arm toward the small of his back, the newspaper reports.

Two officers opened fire, striking Noble four times. Noble died later at a nearby hospital.

No weapon was found at the scene, according to police.

More than 100 gathered Sunday for a vigil at the spot where Noble was shot. The gathering became tense about an hour after it began, when Fresno police officers arrived, reports KGPE.

The crowd eventually dispersed and no arrests were made.

The two officers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave.
