(Los Angeles, CA)  --  A couple of Los Angeles police officers could be out of a job after two separate shootings last year that left two teenagers dead.  The first shooting involves a 14-year-old who was shot and killed while on a busy sidewalk just two weeks before his 15th birthday.  

Officials say the teen pointed a revolver at officers when he was shot, but witnesses say the teen tossed the gun while running from police.  The second shooting involves an 18-year-old who bailed out of a car during a traffic stop.  Investigators say the teen was armed with two guns when officers opened fire.  The Los Angeles Police Commission is expected to decide today whether the officers were justified.
