Just days before Thanksgiving, a black teenage boy from West Virginia was shot and killed by a 62-year-old white man who later referred to him as a “piece of trash.”

Police said the shooting happened Monday evening (Nov. 21) outside of a Dollar General Store in Charleston, West Virginia after 15-year-old James Harvey Means accidentally bumped into William Ronald Pulliam.

Because Means was black and Pulliam is white, officials are in the process of determining whether the murder meets the definition of a hate crime.
