UAE citizen shot, killed by US police after car crash

07 December 2016, 14:28

Cleveland – A man fatally shot by a police officer after his car flipped on the Ohio Turnpike was a citizen of the United Arab Emirates and a student at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, a spokesperson for the state attorney general's office said on Tuesday.

The Summit County medical examiner's office identified the man as 26-year-old Saif Nasser Mubarak Alameri, of Cleveland. Alameri was shot once in the head, the medical examiner's office said.

According to the city of Hudson, Alameri was speeding and driving erratically on the turnpike on Sunday when he sideswiped another vehicle, causing his car to flip onto the roof. Hudson police and Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers searched for the driver, who had fled, and found him in a nearby wooded area.

A Hudson police officer fired shots at the man during a struggle, the city said. The officer was treated for minor injuries and has been placed on paid administrative leave. The officer hasn't been identified.

Hudson is about 48km north of Cleveland.

Jill Del Greco, spokesperson for the Ohio attorney general's office, said investigators from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, which is examining the shooting, will be meeting with representatives of the United Arab Emirates.

A woman who answered the telephone on Tuesday at the media office of the UAE Embassy in Washington said officials were aware of Alameri's death and would be issuing a statement.

The Akron Beacon Journal has reported that Alameri was a law student at Case Western Reserve. A university spokesperson confirmed that Alameri was a student, but declined to provide additional information.
