Officials said an “item appearing to be a handgun” was found at the scene.

The Orange County District Attorney’s office said in a press release Tuesday the item found was a “replica handgun designed to look identical to a Beretta 92 FS handgun.”

What occurred next was not immediately clear, but the D.A.’s statement said the officer-involved shooting then took place.

"We want to know why police felt the need to shoot and kill a 17-year-old unarmed teen girl," Hannah's father Benson Williams said to CNN.

Family demands answers after 17 - year - old girl fatally shot by officer on California freeway . By Erin Donaghue. Updated on: July 10, 2019 / 9:43 The Orange County District Attorney's Office said the uniformed officer was driving his marked police SUV on the 91 freeway in Anaheim around 7 p.m

Rev. Jarrett Maupin, acting as a spokesperson for Hannah’s family, said it was not clear if the replica gun belonged to Hannah.

"We maintain that she was unarmed, a fake gun is a fake gun," Maupin said during a press conference Tuesday, NBC reported.

An independent autopsy requested by Hannah's family will be performed once her body is released by the county. Hannah’s family has also called for an independent investigation led by the state and for the officer to be suspended without pay.

“Losing Hannah is hard,” Lynette Campbell, Hannah's godmother, said on behalf of the family to reporters Tuesday. “The circumstances in which we lost her make it that much harder. As of today we still do not have clear answers as to what happened to Hannah. The information that we have received from the police department has changed several times."

Hannah and her family had moved to the area from Phoenix less than a year ago. She worked as a lifeguard and had spent Friday with her family before leaving that evening, Maupin said.
