Attorney general no longer probing police role in crash that killed boy
The state Attorney General’s Office has ended its investigation into the police involvement in the death of Tea’Shawn Walker. He was the 13-year-old boy killed in a crash involving a stolen car in Albany on April 4.
"The New York State Attorney General has determined it has no basis to continue its inquiry into the death of Tea’Shawn Walker as it’s determined his death did not occur as a result of an encounter with police," the Attorney General’s Office said in a statement. "The Albany Police Department and our office are continuing the criminal investigation and charging decisions will be made soon."
Tea’Shawn was in a stolen car with five other teens, all under age 16. Police spotted the car and tried to stop it. The car collided with another vehicle, and then continued down Northern Boulevard. It eventually crashed near Broadway and Lawn Avenue.
Police have said that the driver will likely face charges.
