SF Teen Fatally Shot After Pulling Gun on Officer
June 06, 2012
A South San Francisco police officer shot a 14-year-old boy after the teenager pulled a gun, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. The boy's friends said he had died.
The incident began when an officer tried to contact the boy in the parking lot of an Arco gas station at 2300 Westborough Blvd. about 9 p.m. Tuesday, police said. They did not explain why the officer had been trying to contact the youth.
The boy ran and led the officer on a short chase, police said. As the officer caught up to him, the youth pulled out a gun, prompting the officer to shoot him once, authorities said.

Very sad. This Officer acted correctly, even though I'm sure the media will scream bloody murder. What the hell prompts a 14 year old to pull a gun on an Cop? I hope this Officer comes back on the Job soon and realizes how close he came to not going home at end of shift.
