Suicidal Boy Fires 100 Shots

A 15-year-old boy from St. Croix County, Wisconsin fired 100 shots in a standoff with police. No one was injured.

The boy called friends earlier in the night, telling them he did not wish to live. The friends could hear shots being fired, so they called police, reported the Pioneer Press.

Police negotiated with the boy for three hours as he fired shots from inside the house, reported the Star Tribune. The Pioneer Press said the shots did not seem to be aimed at the police officers.

The boy finally exited the house at about 12:30 a.m. with cuts from the glass that he shot through. Charges are expected to be filed, reported the Pioneer Press

The Pioneer Press story was much longer and more detailed. The Star Tribune just gave a bare-bones account of what happened.
