Well, this is totally fucking horrifying: Christopher Lane, a rising senior and baseball player at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma, was shot and killed yesterday by three "bored" teenagers who decided to kill for fun. Lane was visiting his girlfriend in Duncan, Okla.—a small town 85 miles west from his college—when the incident occurred.
According to a complete confession by the 17-year-old perpetrator, the three teens pounced on Lane after he jogged past their home. "They saw Christopher go by, and one of them said: 'There's our target,'" said police chief Danny Ford. "The boy who has talked to us said: 'We were bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.'"
Lane was a Melbourne, Australia native attending East Central on a baseball scholarship. His dad back in Australia told an assembled media horde, "It is heartless and to try to understand it is a short way to insanity."
