Two 16-year-old boys in Utah have been arrested and charged after one of them shot a 14-year-old girl in the head. Why? One of them says he was tired of her constantly messaging him on Snapchat.
The duo carried out the brutal attack on Deserae Turner and left her for dead on February 16th.
She’d previously considered the boys, unnamed due to their ages, her friends.
One of the boys talked to her while the other snuck up behind her and shot her in the head. They left her in a canal to die.
She was in a state of disbelief when she learned what happened.
After the shooting, they stole her backpack which contained her cellphone and iPod.
She’d met the boys at the canal to buy a knife.
The shooter’s initial plan was to slit her throat and leave as she bled out. They decided it would be too noisy, so settled on shooting her.
One of the two took a shell casing home as a memento.
The bullet still remains lodged in Deserae Turner’s skull.
She was found barely alive by two women who were searching for her.
She was placed in a medically induced coma.
They’ve been charged with attempted murder, aggravated robbery and obstructing justice.
May 8th is their next day in court to decide if they’ll be tried as adults or juveniles.
