    Metro Police have captured the teenager suspected of going on a deadly shooting rampage in Rivergate and Madison. Police say 15-year old, Lavendar Dontay Howse shot three people Sunday, killing one.

    It all started at the Shoe Carnival in Madison. Here, police say Howse was trying to steal a pair of shoes when a security guard tried to stop him. Investigators say that's when Howse pulled out a gun and shot the security guard six times.

    Police say Howse, then fled to Rivergate Mall, where he shot a nine-year-old boy during an attempted robbery in the parking lot. The young boy was shot in the face, but is expected to be all right. The boy's father, happened to have a gun of his own, and opened fire on the teenager. Howse was not hit during the gun battle, but the stolen car he was traveling in was hit several times, causing the back window to shatter.

    Still, Howse continued on his rampage, eventually making his way to another residential area in Madison. The final victim came when Howse shot a woman walking her dog down Oak Street.

    Police received word that he may have been spotted in East Nashville, at the Berkshire Place Apartment Complex. When they arrived on the scene they were able to take Howse into custody. At the time of his arrest, he was still carrying a gun believed to have been used in all three shootings. He was also carrying additional ammunition.

    Family members said, Howse had recently been released from juvenile, and was involved with a dangerous and influential crowd.

    Howse was escorted back to the Juvenile Detention Center, but may later be charged as an adult.

    He now, faces one count of Homicide, two counts of Attempted Homicide and three counts of Robbery.

    If not for the Dad's foresight in CCW'ing, there would be two more dead victims . . . :(

    I certainly hope his last days are soon, and his last minutes are spent strapped to a gurney with a needle in his arm. Wish the dad had had better luck shooting back - way to go!

    I have a good friend who lives in the Rivergate area. He and his wife just recently came to the realization that the world isn't as idyllic as some would seem to think it is. As a result, they've bought a couple guns and begun to learn to shoot them. Gary has also taken his CCW class and applied for his permit. I'm going to have to show him this article, to reinforce his determination to take self-defense seriously.

    He won't face the death penalty. Because Europeans said so.

    Thanks to the black robed traitors sitting in a court room in DC.

    He should get life for his actions, and another 20 years on top of that for that stupid name.

    I was a little worried when I read the headline - made it sound like the police were doing the rampaging, carrying out extreme jack-booted thuggery without prejuidice.

    Hope the little turd never sees the light of day again, though that's not too likely.

    He will be back on the street in 3 or 4 years 10 years max, where he will either be killed, or will kill someone else (because he is a sociopath with no education and no other options than to rob and kill), and get the life sentance or the death penalty he so richly deserves.

    And all it will cost us is a few more dead innocents, because we're "civilized" and don't execute, or lock up for life, certain murderers.

    i'm afraid the boy may survive but i doubt he will be all right for a very long time (if ever) and dad proably saved many lives as it sounds to me like he would have shot anyone who came into range. I hope he spends the rest of his days (as few as possible) locked away. Unfortunetly I'm sure courts will have him out to kill again before that nine year old is done with all his surgeries :fire:

    What a waste of oxygen. Shooting a guard over a pair of shoes, then deciding to take out everyone who crossed his path. It's a shame he was allowed to surrender. What ever happened to 'shot while resisting arrest' ? It's a shame the kid's dad didn't terminate this 'goblin', as the good Col. is so fond of referring to them. :fire:

    The father of the boy that was shot was unlucky that his first shots didn't connect, but lucky that his later shots did not either. If the back glass of the automobile was shot out, it'd be hard for him to justify (in court, not morally) those particular rounds since the guy was running away.

    OEF_VET: I had just got off I-65 and was heading down Rivergate Pkwy when the shooting in the mall parking lot went down. How's that for being in the wrong place at the wrong time? (yes, I was armed...)

    It's amazing that the punk's zinc .380 worked well enough to allow him to go on a 'rampage' to begin with...

    Supposing the father had shot the guy in the back

    while he was driving away, I don't know many people that would convict him. I however don't live in the same area.

    He'd doubtless lose his pistol to the cops for an investigation, but I highly doubt he'd be convicted. He would, however, be open to civil litigation.

    There was a recent shooting at a local gunstore, where someone tried to steal some guns and started fighting with an employee. Another employee, the store owners' son, felt that his colleagues' life was in danger and shot the perp twice. All of the employees carry openly, so there was a good chance the perp might have attempted to grab the employee's pistol. One or both rounds hit him in the back and the guy died later. The District Attorney declined to prosecute or even take it to a Grand Jury. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the local small-town PD's use your indoor, computer-controlled, air-conditioned range for practice and qualifications.

    I don't know the exact law but he could do it in Fla.
    If the BG is a clear threat to the public.

    Awhile back I read a newspaper account of a man who went into a business and shot and killed a few people.

    BG keft on a bicycle and pedaled his way down the road with the gun still in his posession..

    Two employees followed him in a car , neither would say who shot the BG as they pulled alongside of him , they claim that both of their hands were on the gun.

    They got off

    Sadly, becaue he is a minor, that will not happen. He is old enough to kill, but not to be killed.

    After all, it isn't his fault. If society had only held him more, given him the things he wanted free of charge, his parents been more supportive of him joining the NFL, none of this would have ever happened. He is a just a kid gone wrong, he doesn't deserve to die for that.
