    FL - Teen in St. Cloud AK-47 attack was dressed for war, cops say

    Suspect David Alyn Penney shot himself in the head with assault rifle after trading gunfire with cops [includes 911 calls]


    ..........Young enough to still be battling acne, the 18-year-old stood tall in the middle of Alabama Avenue early Monday and opened fire.

    Methodically pulling the trigger, Penney emptied 30-shot magazines one after another as the full metal-jacket rounds from his AK-47s punched thumb-sized holes through the cinder-block wall of his intended victims' home.

    But two St. Cloud cops came close to losing their lives when the teenager riddled their squad car with sustained bursts of bullets before turning his weapon on himself, according to police Chief Peter Gauntlett.

    Penney, the son of a longtime guidance counselor in the Osceola County school system, was found lying in the street with a massive facial wound, surrounded by fired shell casings.............

    Trauma surgeons at Orlando Regional Medical Center told police Penney is expected to survive but will remain in the intensive-care unit in critical condition for an unknown number of days.

    The "why?" remains unknown, but interviews and a social manifesto discovered by police in Penney's bedroom described a young man bent on self-destruction with all of his anger focused on a seemingly routine crash that damaged his car.
