Australian Student Killed in Oklahoma 'For Fun' by Teens, Police Say

On Friday, Lane was reportedly jogging along a road in Duncan, Okla., after visiting his girlfriend when he was shot in the back, allegedly by the teens.

The victim’s father, Peter Lane, said in an emotional statement that their family has “lost something that’s just never going to be replaced.” He added, “They have a saying it takes a village to raise a kid. Chris was a product of a fantastic village.”

The captain of the Duncan Police Department, Jay Evans, told Shepard Smith on Studio B that the teens were associated with other individuals who had been arrested several months ago for committing a series of armed robberies.

Evans said the teens involved in this shooting seemingly wanted to “live that gangster lifestyle.”
