13-Year-Old Student Shot 9 Times For Mocking Robbed Neighbour

Jones allegedly laughed at a neighbour whose house had just been burgled. It tuned out to be his last laugh. He paid with his life!

A 13-year-old boy, Kobe Jones, has been shot dead by an angry neighbour whose home was burgled in Gary, Indiana, United States.

Jones was reportedly laughing at his neighbour when he was shot.

NBC Chicago reports that the neighbour "created a scene" after coming home to discover that his house had been burgled, only to be laughed at by the teenager.

The neighbour then shot Jones 9 times, killing him on the spot.

He fled the scene with his girlfriend after killing the teenager, but returned later and was arrested around 7:00pm the same day.

Father of the deceased, Kaunda Jones, told journalists that his son was killed for laughing.

"I was told that my son was laughing and the guy shot him dead," he said.

Student Pulse gathered that the house was burgled around 12:30 pm on Friday.

Late Jones is survived by 11 siblings.
