Wow. It's hard to know what to say to these remarks by Jake Evans. First, where did the gun come from? And second-A Parker County, Texas, teen has been arrested on suspicion of double murder after he called 911 and said he shot and killed his mother and sister.According to police, 17-year-old Jake Evans called 911 at about 12:30 a.m. Thursday and said he'd used a .22 revolver to shoot and kill both his 48-year-old mother, Jamie Evans, and his 15-year-old sister, Mallory."It just kind of happened," Evans told the 911 operator in an eerily calm voice. "I've been kind of, uh, planning on killing for a while now."When asked if he meant the two of them or just anybody, Evans responded: "Pretty much anybody."A short time later, Parker County sheriff's deputies arrived at the Evans' family home in Annetta, a town of about 1,700 west of Fort Worth, and took him into custody without incident."I guess this is really selfish to say but, to me, I felt like they were just suffocating me in a way. I don't know," Evans said during the 911 call."Obviously, I am pretty, I guess, evil," he said.Evans is charged with capital murder. A judge denied him bond."Just to let you know, I hate the feeling of killing someone, you know," Evans said in the 911 call. "I'm going to be messed up."
Every gun in the hands of a child or teen must first pass through the hands of an adult.
