In Santa Rosa, California, a sheriff’s deputy shot a boy seven times after confusing a toy rifle the child was carrying for a real weapon. Thirteen-year old Andy Lopez died at the scene. Hundreds of protesters have called for the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office to bring the deputy to justice. Meanwhile, the incident remains under investigation by the FBI and Lopez’s parents filed a federal lawsuit this week seeking for an “honest” investigation of the killing.
