Nelson and the girl had been dating since September of last year until the girl’s mother found out about the relationship and stopped it.
The two continued to see each other secretly, until earlier this month when the girl told Nelson she didn’t want to lie to her parents anymore and broke up with him.
This did not sit well with Nelson, so he allegedly vandalized his ex-girlfriend’s car in the school parking lot. When that didn’t win her over, he posted pictures of him having sex with the girl on social media.
Then, on Monday morning, police say Nelson went to the girl’s home and confronted the girl’s mother, 46-year-old Teresa Ryan, as she pulled up to the home with her 5-year-old daughter in the backseat.
An argument ensued, and Nelson fatally shot Ryan once in the chest and twice in the back before fleeing the scene on foot.…

Investigators say a man watched his son, Georta Mack, walk to the bus stop Tuesday morning, but was unaware that his son had returned home shortly after.
The teen had decided to skip school and hide in the basement until his father left for work – a tactic I am sure many of us used back in the day.
Unfortunately for everyone involved with this incident, the man heard the teen in the basement, but thought it was an intruder. Armed with a handgun, the man went into the basement to investigate.
Police say the teen startled his father, resulting in the man firing off a shot that hit his son in the neck. The boy was rushed to the hospital in “extreme critical condition” but would die shortly after.

It happened late Tuesday night when the 45-year-old woman was awakened by sounds of someone in her house. She told police that when she heard footsteps quickly approaching, she fired one shot.

According to Aiken police, the couple met 23-year-old Frank Frazier Jr. at a gas station thinking they were meeting him to purchase a car he was selling on Craigslist.
