Fla. teen shot in two-county police chase

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 like 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.
