TULSA - Prosecutors have filed murder charges against two teenaged suspects, and accessory to murder against a third, in the death of an Australian baseball player.
Christopher Lane was just 22 years old when police say the three teens shot him to death with a .22-caliber handgun.
They arrested the three suspects, ages 15, 16, and 17, but have not released their names.
The 17-year-old, who was driving the car used in the crime, reportedly told police they committed the murder for the fun of it.
Police Chief Danny Ford told reporters "They saw Christopher go by, and one of them said: 'There's our target. The boy who has talked to us said, 'We were bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.'"
Lane, who was from Melbourne, Australia, was attending college on a baseball scholarship and reportedly hoped to play professionally.
Police have not released any details about Lane's injuries.
