I wonder how this will play out locally and nationally. Is it a problem just in North Carolina, or everywhere?
And I don't mean to be hateful, but look at this guys picture, he kind of looked like something was wrong with him. Erin, a contributor here, is from that area so I'd imagine she'll have a comment or two.
School shooting suspect charged with killing father
A 19-year-old who was taken into custody following a school shooting Wednesday afternoon was charged with killing his father earlier in the day, according to the Orange County, North Carolina, sheriff's office.
The teen fired eight shots at Orange High School, injuring two students and sending others running for cover, police and parents told local media outlets.
Alvaro Rafael Castillo of Hillsborough "was firing [two] weapons when deputies approached him" after 1 p.m., the sheriff's office said in a news release.
Deputies ordered him to put down his weapons, Castillo complied and the officers handcuffed him, the statement said.
After being taken into custody Castillo told deputies that he had killed his father, Rafael Huezo Castillo, according to the sheriff's office.
The body of Rafael Huezo Castillo was found in his home. He died from injuries that "appeared to be inflicted by a firearm," the sheriff's office said.
As the teen was walked to jail, hands cuffed in front of him, he was asked why he killed his father, The Associated Press reported.
"Sacrifice. The world is cruel," he said, according to AP. "We all have to sacrifice. Somebody had to put him out of his misery. He abused all of us."
