RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) -- The Israeli military says its forces shot and killed a Palestinian who was throwing stones at drivers in the West Bank.

The military says forces on patrol Monday were confronted by a group of stone throwers. The forces called out to them to stop and fired live rounds into the air to disperse them, then opened fire on the stone throwers when they persisted.

The military said it was investigating the incident.

The identity of the killed Palestinian was not immediately known. A Palestinian security official said a 16-year-old boy was also wounded. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not allowed to discuss the incident with the media.
