Iaroslav Mosiiuk, a 25-year-old man from Kyiv, was shot dead by a police officer in Charlotte, N.C. on March 8.
His relative called the police saying Mosiiuk was being suicidal, a local police chief told the Charlotte Observer. When the police arrived, Mosiiuk was holding a hunting rifle.
One of the officers fired at Mosiiuk after the man made “an imminent threat” to the police. Mosiiuk was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.
