Lawrence King, the 15 year old who was shot Tuesday in front of classmates at E.O. Green Jr. High in the coastal town and LA suburb of Oxnard, was declared brain dead yesterday. Suspected killer and fellow student Brandon McInerney has been charged with pre-meditated murder and prosecutor’s have now added the special hate-crime charge.
It was also revealed that, sadly, the victim had been living at a shelter for abused children, although the circumstances why he was not with his parents were not revealed.
