Accidental Shooting of Alabama Teen - No Charges

The New York Daily News reports

Jesse Rainey, 15, went with seven male friends early Saturday to an unoccupied Tuscumbia home belonging to the grandmother of one of the boys. They decided to spend the night there after a football game.

“One of the young men cut the lights to the house, then a few of the other guys snuck back inside, wanting their friends to believe there was an intruder.”

Rainey reportedly hid in one of the closets, and decided to jump out and scare one of his friends. Authorities say the other boy, who was carrying a .38 caliber handgun, was spooked and fired at Rainey.
The shooter probably grew up listening to his dad and his uncles talking about the castle doctrine and how we all have a right to defend ourselves without retreating.

Here's the result. And the gun-rights fanatics wonder why we call it the "shoot first" law.
