Why is Sheriff's Department in the title of the story? They had nothing to do with it.

Why would they do this, and then try to cover it up? Blaming the shooting on a drive-by, and making a false police report, is not standard practice.

There is another side to this story that we haven't yet heard.

Race of the victim? Let me guess!

On the brighter side, his parents won't have to worry about buying him a Christmas present.

They are the one reporting it dufuss. They are also saving the taxpayers thousands of $$$ for getting the real shooters to confess to the shooting...I thought they lost all the cow ranches in Chino? If that's the case, why is this piece of manure still living there?

this is why this country needs very strict gun control. all these killings would stop or slow down. there is no reason to own a gun. i don't care! ban ALL guns and everything will be better. guns are for people who are wimps. only a coward has a gun..besides law enforcement.

Andrew, I feel much safer with my guns than I bet you do with nothing but a golf club or a baseball bat.

There are at least a dozen reasons to own a gun. Some people collect art, I collect guns.

No, I've never used one in self-defense, but the Constitution (Perhaps you've heard of it?) says that I have the absolute right to do so.

And I'm not a coward, sir. 6'4, 250, <6% body fat, with an advanced belt in TKD. If that makes me a "wimp" to you, then name the time and place for a demonstration, please? We can have a friendly little competition to see how many pushups each of us can do. But, in the spirit of fairness (Something you know nothing about) I currently hold the record at my gym for those.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens. Obviously you have not learned the past effects of gun control on the people of the world. With guns, we are 'citizens'. Without them, we are 'subjects'. Why do you think that during WW II the Japanese decided not to invade America? Because they knew most Americans were ARMED! If you think that taking all the guns away will make you safer think again. Police protection is an oxymoron. Free citizens must protect themselves. Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess. Besides, I don't carry a gun to kill people. I carry a gun to keep from being killed. I'm a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment and think every honest law abiding citizen should be allowed to carry a firearm.

That may be true. But then more children are killed in traffic accidents than by child molesting murderers. But that doesn't mean we should be easier on molestors. Cholesterol may kill as a side effect, but guns are designed to kill. They're just fulfilling thier purpose when they kill.

you sir are a complete idiot.
please do us all a favor and never vote,drive,breathe air,or anything else that interacts with the public...
no gun ever killed a person,it's the person holding the gun.
legal firearm ownership is a right and a privilege that many enjoy,what did you think that all gun owners are deadbeats and druggies??? did you think that they are driving around looking for victims?? if so you are a idiot and i hope you will -please castrate yourself so your moronic bloodline ends with you

Any other Constitutional rights you don't care about? I vote to take your right of Free Speech away! Actions have consequences, banning guns would be about as helpful as banning cars would be for reducing drunk driving deaths. This shooting was the result of a flagrant disregard for basic firearms safety, nothing more. Also, if you ban guns, how do you plan on enforcing the ban?

Yea, that way only the criminals will have them. Do you really think that criminals care if guns are outlawed?
