KILLING LINKED TO VIDEO GAMES, DRUGS & GANGS

Wednesday August 28 2013

– The role of violent video games, drugs and links to gangs are being probed by Oklahoma detectives investigating the drive-by shooting murder of Melbourne baseballer Chris Lane.
Duncan Police Detective John Byers said evidence had been collected from social media posts by the three boys charged in Mr Lane’s killing – James Edwards, 15, Chancey Luna, 16, and Michael Jones, 17.
“I’ve seen some Twitter posts and they talk about Call of Duty,” Detective Byers said, referring to the popular shooter video game.
Police allege Mr Lane, 22, was jogging alone at 2:57pm on August 16th when Luna shot him in the back with a .22 calibre revolver. Jones drove the car and Edwards was a passenger.
Detective Byers said the investigation continued to examine whether the 107 Hoover Crips and the Piru Bloods gangs, located in Lawton, 51 kilometres away had influenced the boys – Herald Sun
