Police shoot and kill 8th grader with pellet gun
Tyler — A fifteen year old Brownsville boy shot dead at school after police say he refused on a number of times to drop a handgun he'd brought to school.
That handgun turned out to be a pellet pistol, officers say looked much like a real firearm. East Texans talk-back on police actions at the school and whether cops over-reacted.
