Yet another dead teen

It's hardly even news any more...

The most violent year in Peel Region's history continued last night as a 15-year-old boy was shot dead behind a school in Mississauga.

Yesterday's death brings Peel's homicide total to 19 – a record for the region. Last year, there were 15 homicides; in 2006, 12 people were killed.

UPDATE: Remember when you were a teenager...

...and all your friends were running around shooting each other?

Yeah... me neither.
Peel police arrested a 15-year-old boy late last night in connection with the death of a Mississauga teen who was shot and killed in a grassy field just steps away from a busy community centre.

Evan Popoola, 15, was found shot to death in the football field behind St. Jude Separate School on Nahani Way in Mississauga Friday evening around 6:30 p.m.

Want to bet that the gun used in the crime wasn't registered?

well... at least this time... the olympic shooting team has a pretty good alibi.

Gee, maybe they should open up a place to "shoot safely", like those safe heroin injection sites. You know, like maybe a rifle range?

sure... wall off an area... staff it with paramedics.
