Relatives want answers after a 14-year-old boy was shot and killed Wednesday by an Ashland County sheriff’s deputy. The state Justice Department would not identify eighth grader Jason Pero as the victim, but his family did — and his mother Holly Gauthier said he was well loved and there was no reason to justify shooting him. The Justice Department said the boy was walking down a street on the Bad River reservation at Odanah, armed with a knife when an unidentified deputy fired shots. The teen was called a “suspect” but officials have not said why, but they did say the deputy was not hurt. Jason Pero was in the band at Ashland Middle School, where he’ll be honored at Veterans’ Day assembly today (Friday).
