8-Year-Old Kills Two Men


St. John’s, Ariz., is in a state of shock after an 8-year-old boy killed his father and another man Wednesday.

Vincent Romero, 29, and Timothy Romans, 39, were found dead in their home Wednesday. Both men sustained fatal gun shot wounds from a .22 caliber rifle, the New York Times reported.

Romero’s 8-year-old son is eligible under Arizona law to be charged, and was ordered a psychological evaluation test; police believe abuse is a determining factor in the case, reported the New York Times.

The small town of about 4,000 people is expected to come out in droves for the funerals. Romero’s funeral Mass is set for Tuesday at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, the New York Times Reported.

“I don’t think this church is big enough to handle it all,? said the Very Rev. John Paul Sauter of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church.
