FL Teens Wearing Armored Vests Kill Friend While Taking Turns Shooting at Each Other

According to reports, two Florida teens are in police custody for allegedly killing their friend after taking turns shooting live rounds at one another.

Christopher Broad, 16, succumbed to his injuries at a hospital in Belleview after being shot last Sunday. The ensuing investigation revealed that Broad and another boy, Joshua Vining, 17 were taking turns “shooting each other while wearing a vest which contained a form of body armor.” A third teen, Colton Whitler was present at the time of the shooting and allegedly gave authorities a false account of what took place.

Vining and Whitler were arrested in connection with Broad’s death Thursday. Vining is being charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child by a firearm while Whitler faces a charge of providing false information to law enforcement. The teens were both charged as adults.
