Boy, 14, accused of killing 2 last month in South Carolina

#

A 14-year-old South Carolina boy has been accused in two separate fatal shootings last month.

The juvenile is charged with two counts of murder and gun possession during a violent crime for the killings in North Charleston. He is accused of shooting 22-year-old McGill Cason in the head July 2 as the victim drove away from a party. Authorities also say the 14-year-old and a 16-year-old killed 17-year-old Knowledge Sumpter of Lincolnville on July 20.

The Post and Courier reports Saturday that Solicitor Scarlett Wilson has not yet decided whether to pursue prosecuting the 14-year-old as an adult.

Police say the two teens were trying to rob Sumpter when the 14-year-old shot him in the chest. Sumpter was found dead in a yard the next day.

    Aggravated murder by a juvenile normally results in being tried as an adult in primarily every state. Mitigating circumstances usually are in the area of mental disabilities.

    Where were this boy's parents? These poor kids are raising themselves and then going to prison for it. Mom and dad, what the heck?

    Not a boy anymore, just another common murder who needs to be hidden away in some very dark cell with no privileges of any kind forever!

    Some young offenders can be turned around, but killing 2 people at age 14 doesn't bode well for his future. Try him as an adult and lock him up for as long as possible.

    These kids have done nothing wrong, they are a victim of society. Society has let them down so now they have turned on it. Weed need to spend more money on the public school system and global warming.

    Also, please prosecute his parents.

  • Abby1

    Since he wanted to show that he is a tough bad.a.$.$ with a gun, he should be prosecuted on adult charges like one.

    Ummmm...yeah, you most definitely should try him as an adult.
