Kalamazoo, Michigan was home for 17-year-olds Marsavious Frazier and Daqarion Hunter, today’s Irresponsible Gun “Owners” of The Day. The two upstanding citizens idled their time away Monday evening after dark. A witness said they amused themselves “just playing” with a handgun in an alley.
Sadly for the duo, playtime turned into negligent discharge time. Cops don’t know which of the pair depressed the trigger the first time, perforating his chum’s coconut, but the round thoroughly scrambled the recipient’s omelet. Seeing the profound and sudden loss of consciousness, and no doubt distraught at realizing his buddy wasn’t going to wake up from “playing around”, the second young scholar turned the gun on himself.
Cops say the gun was unlawfully possessed by the pair. Irresponsible acts such as this give law-abiding gun owners a bad name.
Marsavious’ mom posted this photo of her son on Facebook while lamenting the loss.
Michigan teen kills self after fatally shooting friend while playing with gun
A devastated Michigan teen killed himself after fatally shooting his friend by accident while playing around with a firearm, police and eyewitnesses said.
Marsavious Frazier and Daqarion Hunter, both 17, were found in a remote alley in Kalamazoo with gunshot wounds around 9 p.m. Monday, cops said. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
It was not immediately clear who fired the lethal shots but an eyewitness told investigators one of the teens caught a bullet after a gun was being “played with.”
The second teen then became “distraught” before turning the gun on himself, the same witness said, adding there was no argument or scuffle before the tragic shooting.
