Prosecutor: Shooting of 14-Year-Old Was Justified

fake-gunBATTLE CREEK, Mich.-The Calhoun County prosecutor says the Battle Creek police officer who shot a 14-year-old carrying a fake gun was justified in that shooting.

In November, Nick King was shot near a party store at Washington Avenue and Grove Street.  Police say they ordered him to show his hands and saw what appeared to be a handgun.

Battle Creek Police say an officer fired one round and King dropped the apparent weapon and took off.

Police found him a short distance from the store suffering from a single gunshot wound.

King was expected to recover.  No charges will be filed.
