17-year-old Christopher Roupe was minding his own business at home, probably playing on a Nintendo Wii console when a knock came at the door. When he asked who it was no one answered, so he opened the door.
That’s when a Euharlee, Georgia police officer opened fire with her pistol and killed the boy with a gun shot to the chest. The officer was at the home to serve a warrant for a probation violation to the boy’s father .
The officer claimed that the boy was pointing a gun at her, but when neighbors rushed to the boy’s aid, they only found a Nintendo Wii controller in his hand.
According to wsbtv, the family of the 17 year old is saying that the officer’s story is just not adding up.
A female police officer told GBI investigators that Roupe pointed a gun at her when he opened the door.
“It just doesn’t add up,” said Cole Law who is representing the Roupe family.
Law said Roupe was about to watch a movie.
“We don’t know where that statement came from. The eyewitnesses on the scene clearly state that he had a Wii controller in his hand. He heard a knock at the door. He asked who it was, there was no response so he opened the door and upon opening the door he was immediately shot in the chest,” Law said.
Neighbors said they ran to the home after they heard the shot.
“When we got up there, they said there was a Wii remote in his hand and she shot him,” said Tia Howard, who lives a few doors down.
Neighbor Ken Yates said he saw the female officer moments after the fatal shot.
“This is tragic. She came out of this house. She put her head in her hands and she was sobbing. Supposedly, he opened the door with a BB gun and in my opinion I think he was playing a game with his neighborhood buddies,” said Yates.
The boy was in the ROTC and had hopes of joining the marines some day so he could fight for his country.
