Investigation ongoing into fatal police shooting of boy, 13
COLUMBUS, Ohio - The fatal police shooting of a 13-year-old Columbus boy who officers said pulled a BB gun from his waistband that looked like a real weapon will be investigated thoroughly to determine if charges are warranted.
Evidence from Wednesday's shooting will automatically be presented to a grand jury.
Police say Tyre King died at a children's hospital shortly after the shooting, which started with a 911 call about an armed robbery.
Police say the officers saw three males matching the descriptions of the suspects and tried to speak with them, when two of them ran off. The officers followed them into an alley when police say a suspect, later identified as Tyre, pulled a gun from his waistband, and an officer shot him several times.
