THE father of a 19-year-old has revealed his son's final words before his death, which has a chilling link to the George Floyd case.

Family of Anton Black, the teen who died after being chased and held down by white police officers in Maryland for over six minutes in 2018, is speaking out again.

NBC Dateline is set to air a special this Friday with host Lester Holt that covers a year-long investigation into everything that has happened since Black's death, including interviews with parents Antone and Jenell.

Antone said that he saw his son "begging for his life" and screaming for his mother as police officer Thomas Webster IV and off-duty officers Gary Manos and Dennis Lannon held the teen down.

"My son was George Floyd before George Floyd," Antone told NBC Dateline.

Floyd died about two years after Anton in a strikingly similar incident, as he was held down by a white police officer until he became unconscious and unresponsive.

It was revealed by police body cameras during each incident that Floyd and Black were both heard screaming for their lives, and specifically their mothers.

The news of Black's death in 2018 and the manner that it happened shocked the Maryland community and even divided it, according to the Black family's friend Christina Robinson.

Only two years later, Floyd's death would virtually divide the nation.

Officer Derek Chauvin was subsequently charged with murder in the death of Floyd, but there were no charges given to Webster, Lannon, and Manos in Black's case, per NPR.

The Black family filed a lawsuit in 2020 claiming that officers Webster, Lannon, and Manos used excessive force, The Baltimore Sun reported.

The three cops countered by filing a motion to have the lawsuit dismissed.

However, in January of 2022, US District Judge Catherine Blake refused to toss the Black family's lawsuit.

The NBC Dateline special is expected to reveal more details surrounding Black's death and the events that followed.

Police ID Man Who Shot Himself Driving Into US Capitol Barricade, Potentially Set Car Fire

Police investigators have identified the suspect who shot himself after crashing his car into a US Capitol barricade before possibly setting his vehicle on fire early on Sunday, Aug. 14.

Delaware resident Richard A. York III, 29, has been identified as the suspect who drove his vehicle into the barricade shortly after 4 a.m. on Sunday morning near the intersection of East Capitol Street and Second Street, according to US Capitol Police.

While York was getting out of the car, investigators noted that it became engulfed in flames, which reportedly were potentially set intentionally.

Police said that “it is still not clear why he chose to drive to the Capitol Complex.”

After crashing, it is alleged that York fired several shots into the air on East Capitol Street, drawing the attention of US Capitol Police officers, who responded to the area and were approaching him when he shot himself.

No other injuries were reported in the incident.

“At this time, it does not appear the man was targeting any Members of Congress, who are on recess, and it does not appear officers fired their weapons,” according to a police spokesperson. “(Their) investigators are looking into (York’s) background.”

DC’s Metropolitan Police Department is handling the death investigation.
