      Police shoot boy holding toy gun


      A 14-year-old boy was shot by Battle Creek police while holding a plastic gun.


      Deputy Chief James Saylor says the boy was crouching outside a convenience store Saturday with what looked like a real handgun. He tells the Battle Creek Enquirer that the boy's injuries aren't life-threatening.


      The officer is a 21-year veteran who has been placed on leave. State police will investigate.


      Saylor says police were called to the scene by someone who reported a man with a handgun walking with a woman on Upton Avenue.
