Teen 'shoots parents, brother, 4'

Thursday, October 28, 2004 Posted: 8:50 AM EDT (1250 GMT)

The house in western France where police say the 14-year-old boy went on a shooting spree.

PARIS, France (Reuters) -- A French teenager shot dead his parents and his 4-year-old brother and later called police from a telephone box to confess, police said.

They said Thursday his 11-year-old sister had also been seriously wounded.

The 14-year-old fled the scene on his bicycle after killing members of his family with his father's shotgun late on Wednesday, police said.

His sister raised the alarm after managing to escape to a neighbour's house. She was flown by helicopter ambulance from the small Normandy village of Ancourteville-sur-Hericourt to a hospital in the city of Rouen.

Lt. Colonel Gilbert Bourdon of the local gendarmerie police said the teenager had abandoned his father's gun and pedalled away on his bicycle.

"Several hours later, the young boy called the emergency number from a telephone box. The operator realised it was the boy we were looking for," he said.

"The operator kept him talking, tried to calm him down, while we sent a patrol car around. He didn't resist arrest at all, he was above all relieved that we'd found him."

The youth remains in detention pending further inquiries.

Hey, look at the bright side, they finally have a Frenchman who will pull the trigger before he drops the gun.

Give me a break. Do you really think they hate us because we crack jokes?

So the people willing to blow themselves up really just have no sense of humor?

I agree, even my joke was kinda tasteless but it is nothing more than my equivalent of striking back at a culture I don't understand and don't appreciate any more. Huge difference between that reaction and being willing to kill them.

Hmm, sounds like something a frenchman would say....

France banned honor, respect, and courage long ago. France now breeds insanity. I guess a person or group of persons without honor, respect, and courage would eventually go insane.

He watched too much Americans movies and TV.

Kidding aside....

This is a very sad story...Regardless.

You know what it comes down to respect for life. A fucking child was killed two parents and another child was hurt bad.

So in my eyes your a fucking peice of shit for poking fun.
