A 16-year-old has been accused of shooting his family after he was told to "get out of bed and get ready for school."
We've all been there. Pretty much. At least the trying to avoid school part. But here in England, we just throw some rice pudding down the loo and pretend to be sick. In the US, they've got guns.
According to a police statement, the teenager, from Nashville, Tennessee, shot his grandma, Earline Hill, 12-year-old sister and six-year-old nephew. He had been giving them severe threats beforehand, eventually retrieving a handgun from his closet.

Earline was shot twice; the teen's nephew and sister suffered grazes. His mother and two-year-old sister were not injured.
After the fiasco, the teen fled the scene, leaving the gun at a nearby apartment, where it was later found by officers. They located him near some railroad tracks shortly after.
Earline Hill is currently in Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she is expected to recover. The teen's sister and nephew are being treated at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital.
The teen has been charged with four counts of attempted homicide. He has refused to talk to domestic violence detectives.
