Default Prank turns deadly

While I'm overwhelmingly supportive of gun rights, I do think it is important that legal gun owners not be stupid and instead be responsible with their firearms. This sounds like a case of someone over-reacting to me and not acting responsibly with a firearm. Gun violence over halloween pranks? Geez, this is crazy. My dad used to sit on the roof and spray pranksters with a hose when they started rolling the trees. They and we always got a good laugh out of it.

Adrian Broadway, 15, fatally shot in prank in Arkansas - CNN.com
The teenagers told police they had thrown toilet paper, eggs and mayonnaise on a car parked there. As they were leaving, a man came out of the house and opened fire. Broadway was struck in the head and died. Another teenager, the driver, suffered injuries to his right arm. He was transported to a hospital, where he was treated and released. Police have identified the shooting suspect as 48-year-old Willie Noble. He was charged with one count of first-degree murder, one count of a terroristic act and five counts of aggravated assault, they said.

"They was trying to be teenagers," Bland said. "As you know teenagers make mistakes, and this was one of those mistakes."
