Hundreds protest police shooting of teen in Chicago (above) Chicago police shot and injured a teenager after the 14-year-old pointed what appeared to be a 9mm handgun at them. Officers believed the weapon, similar to the one pictured left which was brandished by a WA teen resulting in his fatal shooting by police, was real. It turned out to be a BB gun and the shooting was ruled justified, sparking protests by housing project residents. (AP Photo/Jeff T. Green)
