COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police in Columbus, Ohio, say officers shot and killed a 13-year-old boy they thought was pulling a gun from his waistband.

It was later determined to be a BB gun. The shooting happened last night as the officers were responding to a report of a robbery.

Police say the 13-year-old was one of three suspects at the scene, and that they had chased the boy into an alley.
