Sheriff's Deputies Shoot, Kill Teen Holding Pellet Gun
(SANTA ROSA, Calif.) -- Several hundred friends of a 13-year-old shot and killed by sheriff's deputies marched in protest of the teen's death Friday. Andy Lopez, of Santa Rosa, was holding a pellet gun when he was shot. A Sonoma County Sherrif's report states the deputies opened fire immediately on Tuesday after ordering Lopez to drop what they thought was a weapon. At the time, the teen was carrying what looked like a real AK-47 assault-style weapon.
