Teen With Pellet Gun Shot by Cops in Texas

An 8th grade student from who was shot by cops in a Brownsville, Texas school didn't pull a real gun, but rather a pellet gun.

It turns out the 15-year-old student (Jamie Gonzalez) had a pellet gun on him when he pulled it on the cops. After he was told by officers to put his gun down, the teen refused to do so and was shot dead by Brownsville, Texas police - who fired 3 shots at him.

This is likely going to result in a media firestorm for sure. While the cops did what they felt was in their best interests (protecting the students), they are sure to face heavy criticism and a lawsuit over this tragedy.

The shooting happened during first period at the school in Brownsville, a city at Texas' southern tip just across the border.

Teachers locked down classrooms and could hear police charge down the hallway and shout for González to drop the weapon, followed by multiple shots.

His parents you can be certain will have a major lawsuit underway.
