    Angry Ugly: Official: Shooting Victim Brain Dead--Oxnard, California

    Official: Shooting Victim Brain Dead

    OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - A 15-year-old boy who was shot in the head at school was declared brain dead Wednesday but was kept on a ventilator for possible organ donation, a medical examiner said.

    Eighth-grader Lawrence King, who was shot Tuesday, was pronounced brain dead at 2 p.m. at St. John's Regional Medical Center after two neurosurgeons examined him, said Craig Stevens, senior deputy medical examiner in Ventura County.

    King was clinically dead but was kept on a ventilator pending a family decision on organ donation, Stevens said.

    That just stinks, on so many levels! Prayers for the loved ones. The fourteen-year-old suspect has been arrested. The world is turned upside down....

    Sad indeed, but can be expected in a 'gun-free zone'...

    "How did America get to this point?!?"

    It took about four decades. It really got under way when politicians decided that males were not needed in homes.

    I went to that school back in 1986. The Hueneme High School is like 2 blocks away. Sad day indeed! I also pray for both parents.

    Things like this makes me feel really fortunate that my mother in law is a teacher at my childrens school. I know she would do anything she could to protect my kids and let me know if something was going down. Truely another sad story.
