Members of the hip-hop community express their condolences to Antonio Martin, an 18-year-old who was shot and killed by police in Missouri yesterday.
2014 just couldn't go out without one more incident of police killing a black teenager. At the tail end of a year in which we've seen Michael Brown, Tamir Rice and others gunned down by police, 18-year-old Antonio Martin was gunned down last night in Berkeley, Missouri, just two miles from Ferguson. Officers say he was armed, but the full chain of events isn't very clear at the moment. For detailed coverage, head over here.
