Police Kill 18-Year-Old Armed With Pellet Gun After Alleged Robbery in New York

Police shot and killed an 18-year-old robbery suspect in Brooklyn after they say he pointed a pellet gun at them.

Officials say Sergio Reyes robbed a Brooklyn deli for beer early Sunday morning. Police responded to reports of an armed robbery around 12:40 a.m.

After arriving on the scene, three police officers began interviewing witnesses when they saw Reyes walking down the block, officials said.

Police said they gave the teen verbal commands to stop before he pointed a black firearm at them. Investigators believed the weapon was a pellet gun.

The officers then shot the suspect several times, officials said.

Reyes was rushed to Woodhull Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
