A heavily armed 13-year-old boy was shot to death after shooting a Harnett County Officer in the leg Tuesday.
It happened in Harnett County and the town of Cameron early Tuesday morning. Authorities say the 13-year-old was heavily armed when deputies found him sitting in a ditch. He had a semi-automatic pistol and 250 rounds of ammunition. When the deputy told the boy to show him his hands, lawmen say the teen fired a different pistol that was stuffed in his waistband, and hit the deputy in the thigh.
Two deputies returned fire, and the teen died. The injured deputy has been released from the hospital.
