  1. What a crying shame. Two 14-15 year old kids should be focused on school, sports, hobbies etc. Instead they're running the streets WITH A GUN holding up a store. This is very sad!!!

    1. The school is failing , go online and cut the school taxes, Columbia should be a forrunner for a program.

    2. Seriously? The schools are failing???? How about the parents or guardians? The school is there to educate the kids, not raise them. Perhaps our taxes are so high because we have to spend extra time and resources to do just that.
      I guess the school provided the gun also. Really. And 1:30am in the morning, shouldnt Mom & Dad know where their kids are?

  4. Publish their names, if they can commit the CRIME then they won't be ashamed to have their pictures and names posted on crime watch. Job WELL done by the POLICE DEPT. solving the case.

    1. It is not the School it is POOR upbringing by the Parents. The Parents don't care about their Children and they have no IDEA where their Children are when they leave the house.

    2. Make the parents pay, it used to be that way, there were old enough to use a gun , so they are old enough to do time.
