(14 November 1987, West Virginia) Two teenage boys from Elkins decided to have an adventure. First, they robbed a pawn shop, taking several guns. This particular pawn shop just happened to be right in front of the State Police Station, but the crime was not immediately detected. Next, the boys stole a truck. Later, as they argued over who
stole the truck, the oldest deciced he would scare the youngest by pointing one of the guns at him and pulling the trigger. He assumed incorrectly that the gun was unloaded. One shot to the head killed the 15 year old boy. Later, the stolen truck was found in the bottom of a river, all the guns in the cab.
