Arkansas Cop Kills 16-Year-Old Aries Clark Outside Youth Center

A 16-year-old black teen in Arkansas was fatally shot by a cop while outside a youth treatment center.

Aries Clark was at East Arkansas Youth Services on Tuesday ― an emergency shelter for youths that his parents had sent him to for behavioral issues ― when the shooting occurred.

“I never expected not to see my son again,” the boy’s mother, Vicky Clark, told WMC. “I had saw him that Thursday, and we were trying to figure out how we were going to do therapy to get help for him.”
