"A homeowner came out, waved the officer down and said he thought the boy was in the shed," Gonzalez said. Gonzales said the two got into a scuffle that ended when the officer firing one shot, killing the teenager. "It was obvious there was a struggle," Gonzales said. "The officer has a cut on his lip and his knee is injured. It looks like the suspect came at the police officer."

If it'd be my kid this psychopath would be long gone.

I had a feeling the entire story was not being told in the OP's post. Nothing was mentioned of the kid resisiting arrest and threatning the police officer. It's possible the suspect was fighting for the gun. I don't know & I'm not going to assume that. Either way...the police officer should have waited for backup and this wouldn't have happened.
