Meth + Gun + Hallowe'en = Murder

According to South Carolina authorities, a 22-year old, convicted felon has been arrested and charged with murder and assault and battery with intent to kill after firing on a family of trick-or-treaters.

12-year old T.J. Darrisaw, his brother, and father, were all shot when 22-year old Quentin Patrick fired over 30 rounds at them from inside his house Hallowe'en night after they approached his door. The father and brother were treated and released, but T.J. died from his wounds Friday night. Patrick told authorities he had been robbed and shot in the past, which is why he unloaded his assault rifle on the innocent family of trick-or-treaters.

The family had been at a Hallowe'en party and stopped at the home because the light was on.

Our sincerest condolences go to the family and friends.
