MAGNA, Utah — A police involved shooting that ended with the death of a troubled armed teenager has left investigators with far more questions than answers.
The 15-year old was shot by officers who responded to a Sunday morning emergency call from the boy's mother saying that the teen had left his house clad in a black ski mask and bulletproof vest along with a 45-caliber handgun.
