I suspect that his mother was afraid of him to the point that she would give him anything he demanded.
I think the mother was in the process of having the little POS commited and the process was in motion.
I also think the state has the paper work some where and is sitting on it.It may be some of the info NOT released today.
I also think the kid was aware of this and decided to take out the mom and make the history books.
He wasnt going to be commmited.
Maybe, but if I was afraid of someone, the last thing I would give them is a gun.
