Boy, 15, Shot to Death by Police

A Minneapolis police officer shot and killed a 15-year-old boy early Sunday morning who police say was armed with a pellet gun.

Within hours of the shooting, Chief William McManus met with community leaders at his own home in an effort to defuse neighborhood criticism. It was two years ago that a police shooting just four blocks away in the Jordan neighborhood prompted a night of rioting.
