NY Police Shoot and Kill Teen

New York police officers shot and killed a teenager who they thought was holding a gun.

As it turns out he was only holding a dark hairbrush. Police say a 911 operator heard the teen yelling that he had a gun.

When police arrived...they say the teen began screaming from a window at his mother and officers before climbing out the window and heading toward the officers holding a black object in his hand.

The officers ordered him to stop, but opened fire after the teen kept approaching.
