In the state of California in the United States, a woman received compensation for the death of her 16-year-old son and spent part of it to buy a gun for her other son.
According to information, Christina Lopez, 42, received $4.9 million from the city after her son was shot and killed by a police officer. She subsequently spent several thousand dollars to buy a gun for her second child, who was a member of a criminal gang and illegally resold it.
Police charged the California resident with 22 counts, including endangering children and conspiracy to provide a firearm to a minor. She faces up to 10 years in prison. The woman's 14-year-old son also faces charges.
On Oct. 6, it was reported that a shooting occurred at a U.S. school in Arlington, Texas. Police reported that as a result of the attack four people were injured. It is noted that the shooting began after a fight between two students. The suspect, 18-year-old Timothy George Simpkins, fled from law enforcement officers in a car, but police later apprehended him.
