SAN DIEGO (AP) - The Latest on a 15-year-old boy shot and killed by San Diego police (all times local):

1:45 p.m.

San Diego police say a 15-year-old boy who was shot and killed by officers in a school parking lot pointed a BB gun at them.

It happened just before 3:30 a.m. Saturday at Torrey Pines High School.

Police say the boy - a Torrey Pines student - called 911 and asked officers to check on the welfare of a boy standing in front of the school. He didn’t name the boy but apparently meant himself.

Police say when two officers got out of their patrol cars, the teen pulled a gun from his waistband, pointed it at an officer, walked forward and refused demands to stop and drop the gun.

Both officers fired, then performed first aid but the boy was pronounced dead at a hospital.

His name wasn’t released.

The gun was found to be a BB air pistol.

San Diego police have shot and killed a 15-year-old boy they say pulled a gun on them in a high school parking lot.

It happened just before 3:30 a.m. Saturday at Torrey Pines High School.

Both officers opened fire. The boy was shot several times and died at a hospital.
