Christopher Lane was a 22-year-old baseball player for East Central University in Oklahoma. Friday, he was killed in a completely random act, according to police. Three boys, ages 15, 16 and 17 are in police custody for the slaying.
From the Associated Press:
"They saw Christopher go by, and one of them said: 'There's our target,'" [Duncan police chief Danny] Ford said. "The boy who has talked to us said: 'We were bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.'"Ford also noted that the boys said they killed Lane for "the fun of it."
"They followed him in the car to that area, shot him in the back and drove off," Ford said.
Also, the police chief said that two of the three boys have previously been in trouble with the law. Lane was a resident of Australia and had just returned to Oklahoma last week.

"Stephens County Courthouse heard how one of the boys accused of murdering Lane, 22, danced and laughed as he was taken into a police station to be charged after the killing on Friday.
James Edwards, 15, was treating the murder as a joke, Mr Hicks told the hearing.
Mr Hicks told the court that Edwards has previously been in contact with police, and that he had "an attitude of total disregard for law enforcement" when he was being charged over Lane's death.
"He thinks it's funny, and it's all a joke," Mr Hicks said. "I believe he is a threat to the community."
"He was cold, callous and that was the demeanour that we saw throughout the course of the investigation," Mr Hicks said.
Edwards and Chancey Luna, 16, were charged with first-degree murder and face life in prison if convicted.
Mr Hicks said that Luna had refused to co-operate with police.
They were both refused bail....The three will be tried as adults."...
