13 Year Old Boy, With Replica Pistol Shot By Baltimore Police

A 13-year-old African American male caring a toy gun, was shot by a Baltimore police officer Wednesday afternoon.

The teen, who was later identified as Dedric Colvin, allegedly ran when approached by two undercover police officers driving an unmarked police car, the authorities said.

The teen is expected to survive after suffering non-fatal injuries; he was hit in the leg and the shoulder.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis, said the boy was 13, and that he had been seen with what appeared to be a semi-automatic pistol in his hand. Colvin’s mother later said it was a BB gun.

“It is a dead-on ringer, semi-automatic pistol that resembles a Beretta handgun,” Davis said. “Those police officers had no way of knowing that it was not, in fact, an actual firearm. It looks like a firearm.”
