A Los Angeles  teen was killed by a hail of police gunfire on Wednesday night after eight  officers fired 90 rounds in total as he appeared to point an object at them,  according to The Associated Press.

Police  confronted 19-year-old Abdul Arian following a car chase that was caught on  video, during which he allegedly called 911 and warned that he had a weapon and  would hurt officers if they pointed firearms at him. After he was gunned down,  officers discovered that he was unarmed.

Arian also  allegedly published a number of disturbing messages on his Facebook page, and “checked in” via global position systems to the highway where the police chase  began, writing simply, “Home sweet home.” The pursuit began shortly thereafter  when he refused to pull over after officers noticed him driving  erratically.

“He wanted to be  an LAPD cop, and the LAPD killed him,” the teen’s uncle, Hamed Arian, told The  Los Angeles Times, adding that he believes the item in his hands was a cell  phone.

“He was not  depressed or anything, whatsoever,” he also told Los Angeles news station KTLA.
