17-year old George Torres shot in head and killed in Florida

George Torres, age 17
17-year old George Torres went to a Pierson, Florida home looking for a fight. He wanted to fight the brother of his old roommate, Rogelio Dejesus Castillo, 25. But Castillo shot Torres in the back of the head and legs, killing the boy.

From the article:

Sheriff's investigators said a fight between Torres and Castillo's brother prompted the shooting.
A witness said Torres was walking away and about 20 feet away when Castillo fired the gun several times, said investigators, who had not recovered the weapon by Monday.
Castillo later told investigators he was only trying to scare Torres and did not intend to shoot him, deputies said.
Investigators are still working to learn what the fight was about, said sheriff's spokesman Brandon Haught.
