    “Wanting to see a puppy, the little girl laughed and told him no, and that was it," neighbor Chasity Arwood said.

    Infuriating that this child had such easy access to a shotgun. This is no tragedy, it was completely avoidable with proper and responsible gun storage and education. These stories make me so incredibly angry. Be responsible!

    Well, it's a crime. 11 year old is charged with first degree murder.
    Just my opinion

    He just committed his crime at an earlier age than the guy in Oregon last week. There are a lot of angry kids and a lot of crappy parents out there.

    I'm guessing this kid was already pretty well acquainted with that gun before this incident, since he was able to hit his target shooting out a window. I'm not anti-gun, but I am anti irresponsible gun owners, especially those who's stupidity allows guns to end up in the hands of children. I'm hoping we will be hearing about another arrest in this case soon.

    The boy was taken into custody and charged with first-degree murder
    Dyer's mother says the boy had a history of bullying her daughter


    Unbelievable.
    Even with a charge of first degree murder.. I'm guessing this kid will be out on parole by 21 at the very latest.
    And that's if he is completely rehabilitated and over his possible anger issues ; but I'm not going to hold my breath.

    What about the adult who purchased the gun and made it easily accessible ? Shouldn't there be more charges ?


    Rest gently, Maykayla ! My condolences to her grieving loved ones.

    TN - Boy, 11, accused of killing girl, 8, over puppy

    "WHITE PINE, Tenn. (AP) — An 11-year-old boy has been charged with murder after he killed his 8-year-old neighbor, police said, and witnesses say it was because the girl wouldn’t let him see her puppy.

    Deputies were called to the neighborhood in White Pine, about 40 miles east of Knoxville, on Saturday night. The boy shot the girl from inside his home with his father’s 12-gauge shotgun, said Jefferson County Sheriff Bud McCoig.

    Latasha Dyer said her daughter was playing outside when the next-door neighbor asked to see the puppy. McKayla told the boy “no,” and he shot her, Dyer said. A neighbor, Misty Edwards, said her niece was playing with the girl and saw what happened."
