Two Ruined Lives: Boy 15 shoots sister

A sad but uniquely American happening

The teen likely killed his sister sometime after 8 a.m., when his parents left to go grocery shopping in Fort Smith, about 40 miles away, Boen said. The boy turned himself in at the sheriff’s department about an hour and a half later.


Guns were confiscated from the family’s home and vehicle, the sheriff said. Authorities were trying to determine which weapon was used in the shooting.

Medicynical Note:  More than two lives ruined.  If you must have guns, please keep them locked up.
