Youth shot dead after ‘egging car’

November 2nd, 2010 by Staff

Source: Belfast Telegraph — A 17-year-old boy was fatally shot in the neck and leg as he tried to run away after egging a Mercedes on Halloween.

The driver confronted the teenager in Atlanta, Georgia, and fired 10 shots at him at around 8pm local time on Sunday.

The teenager, Tivarus King, died as he was being taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Officers who were dispatched to the scene in north west Atlanta spotted a car fitting the vehicle’s description and arrested the driver.

But Atlanta Police spokesman Curtis Davenport said police are still investigating the case and searching for suspects.

    If more people protected their property like this then crime would take a nose dive.

    Good for him!

    I think this is a case of overkill

    The punishment should fit the crime. I don’t think “egging” a car is a capitol crime.
    (interesting note)
    When an egg hits a car-it leaves a circular pattern of minuscule paint chips in the cars finish. I’m a custom painter and have seen this many times, so it is much more damage than just some egg to wash off!
