Police allege that the teenager pulled out a pistol during the apparent transaction, resulting in an exchange of gunfire.

The boy died at the scene. The off-duty officer was treated and released from a hospital.

Their identities and other specifics were not immediately released.

Police are asking anyone with any information about the incident to call the department or an anonymous tips line.
