8-year-old Boy Shoots, Kills 90-year-old Woman After Playing 'Grand Theft Auto IV'
An 8-year-old boy from Slaughter, Louisiana, fatally shot his elderly caregiver in the back of the head while she was watching television last week. According to police, the boy was playing 'Grand Theft Auto IV' just before he took his caregiver's .38 caliber handgun and intentionally shot 90-year-old Marie Smothers. Deputies say that they are not sure if the game triggered the violent behavior of the child, but it is something they are investigating. Because of his age, the boy will not face charges.
