Posted on 06/14/2005 11:38:12 AM PDT by NRA1995
Authorities say a disagreement over a frozen snack led a McComb teenager to fatally shoot his father and threaten his mother. Curtis McCray Jr., 16, was arrested and charged with murder last week after allegedly shooting Curtis McCray Sr. with a shotgun from about 20 feet away, the Pike County Sheriff's Department said.
Investigator David Haywood said the shooting occurred after the teen was punished for being involved in a minor wreck, and the boy became enraged when his parents returned home eating Sno-Balls and there wasn't one for him.
The teen then allegedly threatened his mother, Gloria, with the gun before speeding away in the family's car and leading authorities on a one-hour high-speed chase through three counties, Haygood said.
McCray was chased on Interstate 55 at speeds up to 115 mph and police set up stop sticks to deflate his tires. He was taken into custody in Marion County.
The teenager is being charged as an adult and is also charged with felony pursuit, Haygood said.

"Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger!"
Sno-balls aren't even that good, I think they're disgusting in fact. Goldfish and Combos maybe, but Sno-balls?
But I bet he was raised with good self-esteem!
What's the difference between a SnowMan and a SnowWoman?
I was thinking it had to be a Twinkie or some Peeps. Snowballs ARE pretty disgusting except as a kind of pop art object ("obb-jhay) and when they're dyed bright green for St. Pat's day.
Leggo My Eggo!
Bart? You're a freeper too!
Well, at least he didn't use one of those "cheap" Hi Point handgunds to shoot him with.
"Who would you kill for a Klondike bar?"
This psycho son was going to kill his dad sooner or later.
How much you wanna bet the kid was on Riddlin?
Ice and sugar syrup vs. two felony raps... umm, let me think.... naw.. Riddlin couldn't be the problem...
What would you do for a Knondike bar?
Would you stand on one foot?
Would you act like a monkey?
Will you kill a man?
Now I've got that jingle running through my head......
A story that makes one say WTF is wrong with teens today?!?!????
I think this goes deeper than not enough SnowBalls. Terribly sad.
"...or have NEVER had to suffer the consequences of their actions..."
He will now.
