17 year old Christopher Roupe is dead after a police officer shot and killed him, mistaking a Wiimote in his hand for a gun. The officer was attempting to serve a warrant to the boy's father, and claims Roupe pointed a gun at her when he answered the door. It turns out that gun was a Wiimote. The officer is currently on administrative leave, and Roupe's family has hired an attorney.
