Activists in Black Lives Matter T-shirts were at the scene of an officer-involved shooting Saturday in Los Angeles, which police say followed the pursuit of a stolen car and a foot chase through a neighborhood.

Police have reported that a gun was recovered at the scene.

The LA Times’ Kate Mather was on site for the police briefing.

Word traveled quickly, in particular the narrative that the teen was shot in the back while fleeing police with his hands up. CBS Los Angeles quoted one woman as saying, “We seen the little boy running, with the blue shirt on. I seen him running with his hands up. Like ‘Don’t shoot me.'”
