“Sacramento police Sgt. Andrew Pettit said two patrol officers spotted the boy walking with another man just before 7 pm.
The officers pulled over their cruiser and noticed that one had an illegal assault rifle hidden under his shirt. Pettit said the man appeared to aim the rifle at one of the officers. The officer’s partner opened fire – shooting him several times. The other man was unharmed.
The Sacramento County Coroner has identified the boy killed as 17-year-old Asencion Herrera.”
Still no explanation given on why the police confronted the boy in the first place.
