Remember the idiotic video we posted recently from Richard Ryan of him shooting from a hoverboard?
An idiot in Florida pulled a similar stunt, and shot his cousin in the back of his head.
Police in Florida say a teen riding a hoverboard and holding a gun, apparently lost his balance and shot and killed a 13-year-old boy.
According to an arrest affidavit filed in Orange County, police were called to a home in Orlando on Sunday after a report that a boy was shot in the back of the head.
The report says Lovardo Fisher, 13, Brandon Louis and Widmar Morame, both 18, were in a bedroom playing video games. Louis told police that he found a gun under a bed and while riding a hoverboard, lost his balance. The gun “went off,” the bullet hitting Fisher in the back of the head.
The teen was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. He died Monday from his injury.
I’m sure you’re going to shocked to discover that the adult who left the gun carelessly laying around is a convicted felon who has now been arrested and charged with possession of a weapon by a felon.
Brandon Louis and Widmar Morame originally attempted to blame the shooting on a “Dindu Nuffin,” (actually, they called “Skeet”), but their hastily-constructed lie fell apart very quickly.
There is no word yet on whether or not Brandon Louis will face charges.
Folks, this should go without saying, but don’t do stupid things like riding a hoverboard, skateboarding, etc with a gun in your hand. That’s just asking for trouble.
