College baseball player shot and killed by three 'bored' teenagers in Oklahoma

2013-08-19 Christopher Lane East Central University

An unspeakable tragedy occurred in a small town in Oklahoma over the weekend as an Australian man attending a nearby college on a baseball scholarship was shot shot and killed in what police can only describe as a random killing by a trio of three "bored" teenagers who claimed to have killed the man just for the fun of it.

Christopher Lane, 22, was found dead Friday while visiting his girlfriend in the town of Duncan. Autopsy reports are still pending and it is unclear how many times Lane was shot.

Lane had reportedly gone for a jog and just so happened to pass by the home where the three boys were staying. It was then when the teens decided to target Lane as their victim and allegedly did so out of boredom.

Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford said a woman called police after she witnessed Lane stagger across the road and fall to the ground.

"They saw Christopher go by, and one of them said: 'There's our target,' " Ford said. "The boy who has talked to us said, 'We were bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.'

"They followed him in the car to that area, shot him in the back and drove off," Ford said.

One of the teens has already given a detailed confession to authorities. However, the murder weapon has not been located yet.

Lane's girlfriend, Sarah Harper, told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. that the two had only returned to the United States from Australia in the last week.

"He didn't deserve any of this," Harper told the network. "It's heartbreaking that it was such a random choice those guys made that drastically altered so many lives in the process."

Lane was heading into his senior year at East Central University in Ada, located about 85 miles west of Duncan. Lane started 14 games at catcher last season.

The district attorney is expected to file first-degree murder charges Tuesday. It is not known whether the prosecutor will try the teenagers as adults or juveniles.

The boys, ages 15, 16, and 17 are in custody and slated to appear in court Tuesday afternoon.

  2. What minority were the shooters? Will a White judge be accused of racism for laying down the lay?? Better call AL Sharpton

    1. Violent crimes by "a minority group" are rampant all over the country, but our glorious MSM refuses to cover. When they do, it's by a "teenager" unless it's a white kid and then it's a hate crime. If the judge is white, you can bet he will have to deal with Eric Holder.

  5. My condolences to the family and friends of this promising young man. May the little you-know-whats rot in prison and hell for the rest of their lives. What a senseless act of violence. Perhaps they should have sat their little a**es down and played video games like the majority of the other teenagers in this world.

  6. This is why those of us who live in the real world and see the real things happen each and every day, use the word "ni66er" to describe a certain group of people. It isn't because we are racist, or insensitive, or need to be "more tolerant" or "understanding". We see it, experience it, live it. We know exactly who we are talking about. These sub-human wastes who did this are ni66ers and they're one of the reasons why those of us who are productive, law-abiding citizens who choose to have guns, want to keep that right intact. They confessed? Execute them. Now.

  7. Most of these comments have nothing to do with what was said . Some "boys" killed a man out of boredom.. no matter the combination of races its still sad and there's someone always going to imply some pointless race card. Doing wrong is not justified by your color and being done wronng is not justifies by your color. Wrong is transparent. Period.

  15. It's not easy trying to pinpoint the very best college baseball player in the Southeastern Conference. But you should consider Todd Helton from Knoxville, who is still actually playing baseball professionally to this day.
