edit to add: Yes!! If my child brought a gun to school and pointed it at Police Officers and she was shot and killed as a result, my opinion would be the same. As a matter of fact, my opinion would be the same but considerably stronger because I KNOW my kid knows better and knows what the result of such an action would be.

Couldn't they have disabled/disarmed him with a shot instead of killing him?
but a shot in the arm, shoulder or legs could ave stopped him without killing him.

The only common denominator is that it's a school like Columbine where the cops were so concerned with their own safety that the let more students die because they were afraid to move in.
Two officers fired three shots, hitting Gonzalez at least twice, police said.
Less than two minutes later, someone yells over the radio "shots fired" and emergency crews are asked to respond. About two minutes later, someone asks where the boy was shot, prompting responses that he was shot in the chest and "from the back of the head."
