It’s a tragic tale. A 16-year-old, life full of promise, killed during a robbery attempt.
Hoke County authorities said Monday that they are investigating an attempted robbery at an Aberdeen furniture store in which one of the suspected robbers, a teenager, was killed in a struggle with the business owner.
Somehow, though, my sympathy is limited. The invaded a store, beat the owner with brass knuckles, and in the struggle the owner took the rifle and shot one of them dead.
They captured two of the other suspects.
Mommy thinks he was “coerced” somehow. I believe that birds of a feather flock together.
