Bakersfield police began pursuing the 2001 Acura around 9:20 p.m. Friday. They say the driver stopped, but then backed into a patrol car after being approached by two officers.
The officers opened fire multiple times, striking the teen. Police say he was pronounced dead at Kern Medical Center.

There goes another Foot Locker.
Bakersfield ain’t LA.
SCRATCH ONE BOGEY
An aspiring rap artist, maybe?
“Police say a third person in the vehicle managed to escape.”
Not what I would call Boy Scouts.
My dad always told me not to inolve myself in risky behavior. The outcome ain’t always what we want.
Under Eric Holder’s JDM you can bet there will be an investigation to determine the circumstances...
In the process of turning his life around.
Well, he was an inexperienced driver-why couldn’t they take that into account?/s;)
No recidivism here. He won’t do it again. Works for me.
the front seat passenger was not located. He is described as a Black male, 25 years old, 59 to 60 tall, wearing a white tank type t-shirt.
The coroner's office has identified the driver as 15-year-old Traveon John Avila of Bakersfield.
I wonder what his father had to say about this??? Oh yea...
Obviously upset that Lebron didn’t pick Bakersfield.
He wasn’t driving it real well. The 25-year old must have been giving lessons..
Just consider it a “loaner car”. Kind of like “undocumented workers”.
... Police in Southern California say officers shot and killed a 15-year-old ...
For sure, after he attempted to assault them with a deadly weapon, his car!
He deserved it, and I have absolutely no tears for this criminal, or the family that raised him.
Need more details...
Were the officers IN the car that backed into?
Was the backing up a traffic maneuver or an aggressive act of assault against an occupied vehicle?
That should do it...
