“A 16-year-old Detroit boy was shot in the head Thursday afternoon while he and friends were playing with a gun in the basement of a Virginia Park home,” clickondetroit.com reports, keeping it real (someone shot the victim). “The boy was in critical condition at a hospital but died when he was taken off of life support on Friday. Detroit police say his 19-year-old friend is in custody and is expected to be charged in connection with the death.” Terrible thing, but it is what it is: a negligent discharge. “According to a police source, the victim’s friend was playing with the gun when it accidentally went off and struck the teen.” Sigh. When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn?
