Teenager Driving Stolen BMW Killed by Karma Police: Friend Was Playing With Gun, Cops Say

A 15-year-old kid who allegedly stole a BMW with his friends was shot and killed this morning by one of his accomplices, who was playing with a gun in the back seat of the car, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

The cops say they think the three boys, all juveniles, were cruising around Boynton Beach looking for people to rob in the black BMW 3-series, which was stolen from Coconut Creek.

After the kid was accidentally shot in the back, police say that the two others dragged him out of the car and through an apartment complex and that he died as a result of the shooting.

Detectives said they caught up with the other two and were getting stories from them about what happened.

The boys originally tried to tell the detectives that they were victims of an attempted robbery but later changed their stories about what happened this morning, according to the cops.

The 15-year-old kid obviously didn't have a driver's license, but police say he did have a student ID from Coral Gables High School in his possession.

Neither the ages nor the names of the other two boys have been released, and although police say the two will be charged with something, they haven't announced exactly what that is yet.

Shoot the other two in the head and save us all a lot of expense and trouble in the future.

Nice kids don't help their friends steal cars so they can joy ride and rob people at gunpoint. I never understand how its always the 'nice kid' who didn't deserve to die, who was hanging out with 'the wrong people'. You may be missing your friend right now,and its a shame that he is dead-but your friend was ONE of the 'wrong people' he was hanging with. Its always interesting watching friends try and white wash their friends bad behavior when it leads to their death.  and the guy chastising others but then claiming he would have offed the kid "in self defense." really needs his head checked. playing devil's advocate in this instance is pointless. the only lesson his friends should take from this is DON'T FUCKING STEAL CARS AND PLAN TO ROB PEOPLE WITH YOUR HOODLUM FRIENDS.

Mathew, Was the kid a known murderer? Think karma is a bit of a strong word for the death of a child whose only crime that you know of at present was stealing a car.Very few people are born hard-wired to be bad. Teens are by nature stupid, and this young man may have had poor examples and little direction growing up. At 15, it's not too late to rehabilitate. I, and several of my peers, did some incredibly reckless, occasionally criminal, and downright distasteful things during our teen years, and most of us are doing just fine now (with one exception).I am conservative on most issues, and had any of these teens attempted to rob me I would have shot them dead (or attempted to do so). Not to take their life in retribution, but only to protect my own.But I would never glorify the death of a child or indicate that it was deserved. Even if it meant posting a blog entry under a less clever headline.Just some food for thought.

Sounds like 1st Degree Murder - occurred during the commission of a felony (or felonies-stolen vehicle, conspiracy to commit armed robbery). Love that felony murder rule.

Matthew,Thank you for the knowledge that we have another Justice Organization to assist us with events of a type not handled by the regular Law Enforcement Organizations. The "Karma Police" are a great addition to the existing organizations trying to protect us from the bad people (and ourselves).

I wonder how we know whether the boy died from the shooting or from the "dragging?"

Good kids can make bad choices. It's life. Been happening for years. Will happen long after we are gone. They just don't all die and end up on the Internet to make hypocrites like you feel better about themselves. I would bet money you have done worse. Self-righteous bully loudmouths like you always eat their words though. Hope you have a big appetite.

Ask God for forgiveness?  I think a Kevlar flack jacket would have been a better option.

We're just lucky this kid was killed and not an innocent person just going about their day - did you not see they were looking to rob people with the gun? Maybe they would've shot someone that resisted and killed them instead.

" I would bet money you have done worse"

Wow, never though I would have to defend myself for not robbing people(and somehow that makes me self-righteous? and a bully?) your comment doesn't even make a point. My appetite is just fine. trying to label me a hypocrite doesn't make me any hungrier or you any smarter sounding. get bent.

Way to mock someone who's probably a teen themself and mourning the death of a friend. Your compassion for those less fortunate or in the midst of tragedy knows no bounds.But I understand not wanting to deny the world exposure to the product of your genius...I mean, "kevlar flak jacket," it's so witty, I don't know that I'd be able to refrain from showing off my clever creativity either if I'd come up w something as good as that.

Maybe. I'll I'm saying is that nobody should be celebrating the death of a 15 year old. Maybe he was a completely amoral sociopath that would have killed someone eventually. Maybe he was a follower with bad friends who, after being busted for car theft, would've had the shit beat out of him by his mama and sent to live with relatives in Georgia where he would've straightened his life out, become a graphic designer, married, had two kids, and called his mama daily to thank her for not giving up on him until he straightened out. Maybe he would've been busted for car theft, sent to Georgia, and become a serial rapist deserving of death....

Who knows? My point is that he may have been doing some dumb-ass shit, but geez, I weep for society that people are on here essentially saying "good riddance" when a KID has died.

As I said in my previous post, I am fairly conservative and armed, and if they'd tried to rob me I would have shot to kill. I'm not condoning their behavior, nor am I condemning anyone who uses deadly force to protect their life and property. What I AM saying is that neither of those circumstances occurred, and it is a tragedy when a teen loses his life...even if it was over some dumb-ass shit he shouldnt of been doing in the first place.

Get bent? What does that even mean? No, wait...I don't want to know. LOL. But that's cute. Now YOU are the smarter one. Good job! And it only took you 3 weeks to think it up!

My point still stands. Yes, it makes sense, and your being a little dramatic with the whole "Wow, never thoughT I would have to defend myself for not...." (Because that is EXACTLY what I said, and I added the "t" to thoughT for you. Your welcome). Stupid kid, stupid decision - yes. Reason to celebrate - no. Wait a minute, you are never gonna get this. Sorry for trying. I respectfully agree that we don't agree.

You just keep throwing stones from your glass house dude. Thanks for the laugh!

I completely understand and agree. It would have been karma if we were talking about an adult repeat offender who had blown every chance thrown at them. This is simply tragic. This is not karma. Karma would be if the guy who wrote this headline loses one of his own so young in a senseless chain of events. He may reconsider celebrating such tragedies. Pretty disgusted with this headline and angle.

The people that derive pleasure/satisfaction/celebration from a person's death are devoid of empathy. They see empathy as a negative virtue and cruelty as positive. The first to say 'ha, he got was was coming to him' without knowing details were likely the first to bully other people at every stage growing up.
