aimed handgunColumbus, GA – A 15-year-old with severe anger management issues got so angry with his parents for making him do chores instead of looking up a Bible verse, that he shot them both.

The incident happened on Friday, but started the day before when Kristi Lynn and Randal Askevich told their son to stop what he was doing and to complete a household chore.

The teen had been tasked with taking an old bed comforter to Goodwill, but the teen had his own, personal agenda at the top of his to-do list.

He was trying to do the Lord’s work and locate a Bible verse for a girl who had told him she wanted to be “saved.” (I really hope it was this one, as it is one of my favorites)

After much nagging, the teen finally did as he was instructed, but he was pissed. He stewed over it the rest of the day and into the next day while at school. He finally came to the conclusion that his only option was to shoot both of his parents.

So on Friday, the boy got home and took a 9mm handgun from his parents’ nightstand and waited for them to return home from work. When they arrived, he came out and opened fire on them both. According to reports, no argument proceeded the shooting.

When police arrived at the home, Kristi Lynn walked out of the home suffering from a bullet wound to the abdomen and wrist. Randal Askevich was still in the house with his son, shot in the hip, but had talked the teen into handing over the gun.

The teen was taken into custody and has been charged with two counts each of aggravated assault and possessing a firearm while under the age of 18. Both of his parents are expected to recover. Physically, anyway.

The boy’s parents say they feel no ill-will towards their son, stating he’s had long-standing anger issues and is on several medications. In 2011, he’d been through a diversion program designed to guide minors away from drugs and crime.

I would suggest to these parents, if they decide not to diswon the boy, the get him acquainted with Deuteronomy 21:18-21 – another one of my favorite Bible verses.
