A guy in my neighborhood broke into his ex-wife's house, shooting and killing her and her parents. He died that same night in a car accident while running from the police. Happened on the road that I take when I drive to school every day. It is indeed shocking when things like that happen close to us. :/
The boy sounds like he's a had a bad life- not that it justifies shooting someone. I hope that the guy he shot didn't get seriously injured, and that the boy finds someone to sort out his life (though I doubt that will happen). Either way, I'm glad that he's been removed from society for now.
