Identity Revealed of Teenager Shot by Police

Michael Cain De La Rosa of Lubbock died after he aimed a handgun at officers who ordered him to drop his weapon. Just before 5:00 Friday evening, police received two reports of a man walking in the Arnett-Benson neighborhood, dressed entirely in black, and carrying a handgun.

Officer Chris Hennsley and Officer Brad McMahan found De La Rosa at the intersection of North Flint Avenue and Fordham St., and that's where the shooting occurred. At least nine shots were fired. According to LPD spokesman, Bill Morgan, De La Rosa suffered at least one gunshot wound to the chest and two in his hand.

Rosa Ramirez lives near the crime scene. After she heard gunshots, she ran to her window to see what was going on.

"Police were trying to handcuff him, and I don't think there was any movement. And I just saw police. They were feeling to see if he was alive," says Ramirez.

Lubbock Police Chief Claude Jones later revealed the gun was actually "a full-size, realistic, non-functioning replica of a medium-caliber, semi-automatic handgun.

Following a debriefing, Officer Hennsley and Officer McMahan were immediately placed on paid administrative leave, pending the outcome of a full investigation.

Detectives want to talk with the three people who saw De La Rosa and reported him to police. A hispanic woman flagged down Officer McMahan after she saw De La Rosa walking on Flint Avenue, and the two hispanic men in a grey Cadillac who drove up to a mobile police unit in the area to report De La Rosa as well.

If these people or anyone else has any information, you are encouraged to call Detective Rey Martinez at (806) 775-2405.
