Boy with fake gun killed by police in US

A 13-year-old boy carrying a replica assault rifle has been shot and killed by police in California.

Officers in Santa Rosa said they opened fire when the boy, Andy Lopez, refused repeated orders to drop the rifle - which they thought was real.

The shooting, which happened on Tuesday, is now being investigated.
