COLUMBUS (AP) — Officers fatally shot a 15-year-old who was armed with a gun and suspected in the robbery of a pharmacy store on Thursday, Columbus police said.

At least two officers fired at the boy when police confronted him at the CVS store and found him to have a gun, police said on Twitter.

The boy was taken to a hospital in critical condition and died of his injuries. Nobody else was injured.
