OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Australian man attending an Oklahoma college on a baseball scholarship was shot and killed in what police described Monday as a random act of violence by three "bored" teenagers who decided to kill someone for the fun of it.

Christopher Lane, 22, of Melbourne, was found dead Friday while visiting the town of Duncan, where his girlfriend and her family live. Three boys, ages 15, 16, and 17, are in custody and face a court appearance Tuesday afternoon.

Lane

Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford said Monday a woman called 911 after she saw Lane stagger across the road and fall to the ground in the south-central Oklahoma town of about 24,000 residents. Ford said Lane, who was staying with his girlfriend and her family in Duncan, had jogged past a home where the three boys were staying. He said the shooting appeared to be completely random.

Autopsy results are pending. Ford wouldn't say how many times Lane was shot.

Ford said the 17-year-old has given a detailed confession to police but that investigators have not been able to locate the weapon.

"They saw Christopher go by, and one of them said: 'There's our target,'" Ford said. "The boy who has talked to us said: 'We were bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.'"

"They followed him in the car to that area, shot him in the back and drove off," Ford said.

Ford told the television station KOCO in Oklahoma City that one of the teens said they shot Lane for "the fun of it."

''We were bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.''

The police should just hang them all, save the money and time from the trials and feeding them in the jail.

I'm surprised. By the motive, or lack of, and that there were three. I could see one crazy person deciding to kill for no reason; but three agreeing to do that is beyond my ability to understand.

These folks need to be put in jail for a long time. If not the death penalty.

Maybe it was some kind of bizarre initiation ritual?

i doubt it. it sounds like three really stupid redneck teens were bored. duncan is a small oil town southwest of okc. its nothing but farms & oilfields. the closest town that would have any 'gang' problems is lawton, about 30 miles east of duncan. lawton is a miltary town, but it does have a pretty bad gang problem. sad deal.

I wasn't suggesting that they were attached to any kind of gang. It was a pact between the 3 of them, with certain sinister under currents they are not even intelligent enough to realize. Things on a lesser scale than this happen in single sex boarding schools all over the world.

They've identified the three guys now. I predict this thread takes a turn for the worst:
