Suicide by Cop

A 15 year old boy brought a pistol to school. He was trapped in a restroom by law enforcement and
"At one time he held the gun to his neck. As the deputies attempted to establish dialogue, he raised the firearm and lethal force was used by the sheriff's office."

[addendum: As pointed out in the comments the boy survived and went to the hospital. However, it's now being reported that he is brain dead]

It looks like it turned out to be a pellet pistol, and the lethal force apparently hasn't had a lethal result because he's still in the hospital.
