PITTSBURGH — A funeral is being held for a 16-year-old Pennsylvania boy who authorities say was shot by a teen who took a selfie with his body.
Ryan Mangan’s funeral was scheduled for Monday morning at Sacred Heart Church in Jeannette. He was found fatally shot in his home Feb. 4.
Police have since arrested 16-year-old Maxwell Morton, of Jeannette, and charged him with criminal homicide.
Police say they identified Morton through a selfie he took. They say the picture shows Morton next to Mangan’s body, which authorities found in the same position and condition.
The Jeannette School District delayed classes by two hours because of the funeral. Both boys attended classes there.
Morton faces a preliminary hearing Feb. 19.
I suggest watching the news video on the link as it explains the situation in a bit more detail. Basically this kid shot another teen in the face and then sent snapchats to his and the victim's friends, of the body and of himself next to the body. Wtf is this world coming to?
