VENTURA, Calif. (CBS/AP) “Tell Larry goodbye because you’re not going to see him again.” That is what 15-year-old Brandon McInerney said a day before he allegedly shot and killed fellow student Larry King, according to police.
Everybody knew who Larry King was at E.O. Green Junior High in Oxnard, Calif. King, fifteen, was open about his sexual orientation and known for his splashy personality and wearing high heels to classes.
On Feb. 12, 2008, King was in the school’s computer lab with 24 other students. Authorities say McInerney, an eighth-grade classmate, walked into the room with a gun and shot King in the head. McInerney ran from the building and police officers detained him a few blocks away. See Was This Junior High Student Killed for Being Gay? CBS News
