Abu Dhabi Police, in coordination with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, dispatched a specialist team from the Criminal Investigation Department to participate in the investigations with the US authorities about the circumstances of the killing of Emirati student, Saif Nasser Mubarak Al Ameri.

The Emirati man, who was shot and killed by police in Ohio, was a law student at a Cleveland university.

Saif Nasser Mubarak Al Ameri, 26, was killed by a gunshot to the head fired by a policeman from Hudson City police. Al Ameri was a student at Case Western Reserve University, some 50 kilometres away from the rural area where Sunday’s shooting occurred.

According to officials, witnesses said Al Ameri was speeding on the Ohio Turnpike just outside Hudson, a small city of 25,000 people in rural Ohio. His car clipped another and overturned. Ohio State Patrol troopers responded to the accident because it occurred on a state road. An officer from the Hudson city police force joined the search.
