The police in Arlington, Tex., asked the F.B.I. to help investigate the shooting death of an unarmed black college student who was killed by a police trainee early Friday morning inside a car dealership.

..

Chief Will Johnson of the Arlington Police Department said that the trainee, Brad Miller, 49, shot and killed Christian Taylor, a 19-year-old football player at Angelo State University in San Angelo, Tex., as he attempted to flee from police officers who had been dispatched to the dealership after reports of a suspected burglary.

..

Chief Johnson pledged a transparent, thorough and fair investigation, but warned that it might be lengthy and at times frustratingly slow. He said that he had invited Thomas M. Class Sr., the special agent in charge of the F.B.I.s Dallas division, to participate.

..

Our pledge is to provide answers in the most thorough and expeditious manner possible, Chief Johnson said at a news conference on Saturday night. He also included an acknowledgment that this instance has not occurred in isolation, but rather has occurred as our nation is grappling with the problems of social injustice, inequities, racism and police misconduct.

..

Officer Miller had been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation, Chief Johnson said.

..

He said Officer Miller had not yet been interviewed about the incident, a delay that Chief Johnson described as standard police practice. He told reporters that the department would release recordings of both the 911 call that preceded the incident and police radio traffic, but that it would not do so until the two officers at the shooting, Officer Miller and his training officer, had submitted statements. He estimated that would take seven to 10 days.

..

Chief Johnson said the police were called to a Classic Buick GMC dealership in Arlington shortly after 1 a.m. Friday, where they found Mr. Taylor roaming freely inside the showroom. A Jeep had crashed through the front window.

..

The officers ordered Mr. Taylor to lie down, and when he fled instead, they chased him. He was found trying to get out of the building through a locked glass door. Chief Johnson said that the two officers struggled with Mr. Taylor and that Officer Miller fired four shots.

..

Mr. Taylor was struck multiple times, Chief Johnson said, and was declared dead on the scene. Investigators later determined that he had no weapon.
