BATTLE CREEK (AP) – 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 says the boy’s injuries aren’t life-threatening.

The officer is a 21-year veteran who has been placed on leave.

State police are investigating.
