Yesterday, I outlined some of the tragedies that took place from idiots celebrating the new year by firing guns indiscriminately. Those were awful.
However, there was a different kind of tragedy that took place on New Year’s Eve. In Georgia, a teen killed himself after reportedly killing his friend.
One teenager was accidentally shot, and another committed suicide in related tragedies hours before ringing in the new year in Georgia.
A group of teens had gathered at a “makeshift shed” in Lawrenceville, an upscale suburb of Atlanta, on Monday afternoon when one of them pulled out a handgun and accidentally shot one of the others, according to the Gwinnett County Police Department.
Two of the four teens ran, but police believe the boy who fired the original shot stayed in the shed and called 911.
Responding officers found one teen dead inside the shed and then “heard a single gunshot while attempting to locate the involved parties from the initial 911 call.”
In other words, the teen had a negligent discharge which struck and killed a friend. He was so distraught by what happened, and probably fearful of going to prison for it that he took his own life.
One bullet, …Read the Rest
