Cops in Arizona have shot dead an Asperger’s sufferer, who took the internet by storm in their own home.
Sources say cops are referring to the victim by their legal name, Danielle Jacobs; however, Jacobs, in fact, identified as a transgender man by the name of Kayden Clarke.
Cops state they were called to Clarke’s apartment following a suicide call; however, when they arrived Kayden was brandishing a knife. Police reportedly shot him dead having felt threatened by the 24-year-old.
Kayden, 24, who was rushed to the hospital for an operation but passed away later, had gone viral on the internet after a video of his service dog, Samson, comforting him was uploaded to YouTube.
Kayden had earlier said that autism did make him a threat to himself.
Detective Esteban Flores from the Mesa Police Department, Arizona, has stated cops were acting in self-defense.
