PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Latest on the fatal police shooting of 17-year-old Antwon Rose (all times local):

2:15 p.m.

A teenager has been arrested and officials say he is expected to be charged as part of an investigation into a drive-by shooting that authorities say preceded the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teenager who fled during a traffic stop.

Allegheny County spokeswoman Aime Downs says police arrested the 17-year-old Tuesday on separate charges, and he has not yet been charged in the drive-by shooting.

Downs says the teen is one of two passengers who fled from a car stopped by police last Tuesday. The car matched one they say was involved in the drive-by shooting.

A video of the traffic stop posted to Facebook shows two people running from the car before an officer fired at the pair.

Seventeen-year-old Antwon Rose was fatally shot.


8:30 a.m.

Dozens of protesters are shutting down traffic in downtown Pittsburgh during morning rush in a continuing call for justice over the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teenager buried a day earlier.

Marchers have disrupted the city in the days after 17-year-old Antwon Rose Jr. was killed by a white police officer in nearby East Pittsburgh.

The diverse crowd marched through Pittsburgh on Tuesday with arms locked and chanting, “Who did this? The police did this!” and “Three shots to the back, how do you justify that?” They had refrained from protesting Monday out of respect for the family.

Rose was killed last Tuesday after police stopped a car officials say matched a vehicle wanted in a shooting in a nearby town. He was running when he was shot.
