Police: Ohio man killed by security guards

CLEVELAND (AP) — Prosecutors in Cleveland are considering whether charges should be filed against private security guards who police say fatally shot a 20-year-old man during a confrontation last weekend.

Police said the incident involved five security guards from Kingdom Warrior Protection Company who were dispersing a crowd after a private party on the city’s northeast side early Sunday.

The guards said Are’es Richards refused to move his car and struggled with one guard before driving his car at him. That’s when three armed guards fired a total of 17 rounds at his car.

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/17VdzXj) reports Richards drove away and was found unconscious in his car at a gas station. He was shot in the leg and died later at a hospital.
