The paper said the mother of the slain boy, 16, asked officials not to release his name until she had been able to tell other members of the family what happened.

The incident happened on the Thun Trail near a bridge over the Schuylkill River, between Reading and West Reading just after noon Wednesday.

"There was one juvenile who was shot and is deceased [and] another juvenile who was shot and is in surgery," Police Chief Jed Habecker said, according to a report by the WFMZ-TV station.

According to police, the 65-year-old was riding his bicycle when the teens knocked him to the ground, the station said.

Police said two teens then assaulted the man, who drew his gun and shot them.

The man was released by police after they consulted with District Attorney John Adams late Wednesday,


Confronted by several teens who decided to be douche bags and assault the guy. Drops backs pulls out the strizie and comes out blasting. Shoots 2 of them, kills one, severely injures another, gets pulled into the local cop shop and then released later that day.

About freaking time.

For every story like this, you can find dozen where a guy pulls a gun in a drunken argument, shoots someone then goes to pound-me-in-the-ass for 20 to life.

I don't think it is possible to reverse US gun-nut culture, so at this point it is generally a good idea to own a gun so you can defend yourself from other people with guns. Ideal situation is when guns are not readily and easily available to criminals and people generally only have hunting long guns.

Lets talk about taking responsibility for your weapon. If you purchase a gun you now have to be responsible for how its get used. Someone gets shot with your gun and you didn't report it stolen and documented all circumstances that go on your permanent file - you are considered accomplice.

Plus gun is a lot deadlier than a car, why is it so much easier to get gun permit than driver license? The very least is you have to be able to demonstrate safety and competence with a gun before you are allowed to "drive it". Just like cars.

Apparently you have never tried to get a concealed weapons permit. You are required by Federal Law to take a weapon safety and owners responsibility class before you even get on the range.

I was going to take the time to explain it beyond this, but quite frankly its a waste of time.

I was talking generally about gun ownership, since you can buy a gun without Concealed Handgun License.

Agreed. I am fairly set in my opinion that current state of gun ownership is dysfunctional and one of the reasons for such high rate of gun violence.

If gun ownership was driving, our roads would be like a bumper car park. Hardly any rules, anyone can get one, everyone jumping in and out without any kind of record and bumper cars changing hands all the time.

Let's see some of these some of these "DOZENS" of Incidents per one story like this!

It's sad you're willing to give up a RIGHT to protect yourself just because some bad apples. With this logic let's give up our vehicles, because drunken idiots get into arguments jump in a car take off and kill innocent people too. In fact a lot more die from these actions rather than guns. So... when are you going to start picketing driving cars because of drunk drivers?
