Venezuelan police killed a boy - level 2

There was a demonstration in a Venezuelan city. Around 20 people fought with the police. A 14-year-old boy was in the violence.

A policeman shot the teenager with a rubber bullet, and the boy died on his way to hospital. The policeman confessed to shooting the boy and police arrested him. The Venezuelan president condemned the violence.

Difficult words: violence (when people fight), confess (to say that you did something bad), condemn (to say that you do not agree with something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
