|US police shoot dead 13-year-old boy who was carrying 'lifelike' toy gun |
A 13 year old boy carrying a toy gun has been shot dead by police in California.
Andy Lopez Cruz was walking along a field on his way to a friend's house in Santa Rosa in the north of the state when two officers saw him carrying a gun which they believed to be real.
According to a police statement, they called out to him to drop it, then fired several rounds from their handguns, killing him on the spot.
