Embassy officials met authorities in the American state of Ohio on Wednesday to discuss the killing of an Emirati student by a police officer. The Ohio bureau of criminal investigation said the Embassy representatives would act on behalf of Saif Nasser Mubarak Al Ameri’s family. The bureau said Al Ameri had been driving a 2009 Toyota Camry erratically on the Ohio Turnpike in the city of Hudson on Sunday before crashing his vehicle and fleeing into woods. When a Hudson police officer found him about a kilometre away, a struggle allegedly ensued, leading to Al Ameri being shot. The officer was treated for minor injuries and was on paid leave pending the results of an investigation.
