How horrific, that poor boy and his family. I cannot believe that daughter lied and made the situation come to that.

It’s very sad. Bottomline, the girl shouldn’t have lied. If I were the dad, and not knowing who the kid was, I would assume it was an intruder too.

I remember watching all those tv shows how people live to tell their story. One was about a teenage girl who an intruder came to kill random girls. Thank god her father was next door and fought the intruder.

The father is trying his best to protect his family, and when things happen to quick, people tend to make judgements too quick for the sake of protecting their family first.

So sad. Another completely unnecessary shooting.

Guns. Sigh. Take guns out of the equation and it’s just a dispute.

This could’ve been prevented if the girl wasn’t such a dumb ass & owned up to it… Especially when she saw her dad with the gun. Though, I don’t get why the boy didn’t listen to the dad’s orders.

invisabee:  Though damage can be done with hands, the boy might have had a fighting chance to defend himself. Given only the dad had a gun, the boy had no chance.

This is ridiculous on so many levels.

She is in as much fault as the father. This young teen didn’t deserve to die. Shame on both of them.

Well, the girl is the most at fault.  But any 17 year old should know there could be dire consequences for going into a girl’s room and hiding when the parents don’t know.  He certainly didn’t deserve to die- but it was stupid.

I am so upset that the girl lied! Of course if the father thought it was some stranger in his daughters room he would react differently than if he thought it was the girls boyfriend she snuck in! 

Also, Why didn’t he shoot to harm and not to kill? He didn’t need to shoot to kill…..

THIS is what happens when people are allowed to own guns..things may have turned out differently.
