Police: Prankster shot dead after egging Mercedes

Published: Mon, November 1, 2010 @ 2:03 p.m.

ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities say a driver enraged because a 17-year-old boy egged his Mercedes on Halloween fatally shot the prankster in the neck and throat as he tried to run away.

Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones says the driver confronted the teen and fired 10 shots at him around 8 p.m. Sunday. The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office says the teen, Tivarus King, died as he was being taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Jones says officers dispatched to the scene in northwest Atlanta spotted a gold Mercedes driving by and detained the driver. She says the suspect is being questioned by homicide investigators but has not yet been charged.

This boy must not have been from the hood or he would have known what would happen . Perhaps he was mentally challenged ? In Youngstown you can't respond in such a fashion even if your car is riddled with bullet holes let alone egged . We protect our subculture !

To KILL someone over egging a car (especially on Halloween) is a little bit to much. This is murder.

I hope they lock him/her up for a nice long time. Good lord, if people could kill for TP'ing their house or soaping their windows, I would have been dead 26 years ago...

Now I know how to handle these Halloween Hoodlums. I just spent two or three minutes picking up candy wrappers that the little monsters littered in front of my house.

Next year I'll be ready for them. I'm going to sniper school and the first time some little Princes or Pirate devalues my property by dropping a candy wrapper I'll be dropping them.

This was a George Carlin comedy routine on one of his albums in the 1970's, except the boy was Danny Omerta, who was soaping the windows of cars on his street. When Danny got to the car owned by a Carl Downing who was seated inside, Carl shot Danny in the head 4 times. It was actually a very funny bit but you would never expect it to happen in real life.

Unfortunately, it's a different day and age!

Slow learners many times get no second chance . Cars are valued highly . Look at the money spent on just the wheels .

Egging a car did not put anybodies life in danger . AND that is the only reason to shoot to kill , That is the law. He/ She killed someone because they got egg on their car . Wow what a sick world we live in And worst yet some people think it's OK Boy how sick we have become .

Plain and simple Murder. Shame on those of you who think this is okay. You are as bad as the "urban youths" you constantly refer too. You are white societies "sub culture". Trust me white society is about as proud of you as black society is of the thug, gangbangers.
