Denver teen shoots at officers
Editor's Note -- In this and two other recent incidents, officers were confronted with dangerous teenagers, two 15-year-olds and two 16-year-olds. These incidents serve as reminders that teenagers can —and in instances this these, do—pose a serious threat to police and innocent civilians. Young does not mean “harmless.” Keep your tactical awareness high, regardless of who you’re dealing with, and never let your guard down.
Denver Post staff reports
