    Reportage Online

    A teenager was shot and killed by police in the South Bronx on Sunday night after police spotted him running down the middle of the street with a handgun in pursuit of another person. The teenager allegedly ignored orders to stop and the policeman, a rookie cop just one month out of the Academy, fired once, striking him in the jaw. You can read more about this story in the New York Times.

    The officers involved had been assigned to the neighborhood as part of the police department’s Operation Impact, which sends rookie cops to patrol high-crime neighborhoods, and which was documented by Reportage photographer Antonio Bolfo between 2008 and 2010.

    You can see more of Antonio’s photos of Operation Impact on the Reportage Web site.
