Another victim in the US during a police operation.

It happened in Leonardtown, a small town in Maryland 100 kilometers southeast of Washington, where an agent, who intervened for a check after some telephone reports on a "suspect", shot and killed a sixteen year old who was holding an air pistol.

The stricken teenager was also found in possession of a knife.

From what has been learned, the agent would have explained that the weapon in his hand "was very similar to a real one".

The authorities have opened an investigation into the incident.
