The old fellow is clearly in the wrong, unless some amazing circumstances come to light later.
He was a legal gun owner, never in trouble, so what "gun laws" would have prevented this? NONE!
All the laws in the world would not have stopped this from happening, except for 100% confiscation, just admit it gun-grabbers!

This could have happened with a completely legal shotgun in Canada, too. Some scared old man who fears every young person sees a threat and blasts away. They take away drivers licenses from incompetent elders, but to do this with guns you'd have to register every type of gun. We tried in Canada and it was a complete flop.

There must be something more to the story
the old man had a sign saying something about shooting survivors. the foreigners couldnt read it. the old man shot some kids thinking his sign would legally protect him....well, thats my guess anyways

There must be something more to the story. Maybe the kids thought they were ding dong ditching their friend's house or something. You don't shoot someone for just pulling up to a house. Either that old man is nuts or those kids were pulling some kind of prank.

This is a clear example of why I don't want a gun in my house. I've heard some argue in the last few months, that they would defend their property to death from a home invasion, fine. but how often is something like this the case? regardless of what the Cuban kid's intent was, if he was driving away at the time he was shot, it is murder. Two lives destroyed. stupid.

If everything said was true, then sad...
This doesn't change my stance on guns, however, the old man should still be held accountable.
Most castle doctrines say that the to-be-shot needs to actually break and enter before legally being able to be shot at, and that the shooter may not shoot a fleeing person, e.g. in the back.
The old man really has no excuse.

clearly there should have been an armed guard at the house to prevent this...

Maybe the old man didn't have a handydandy interpreter.

1: He's not a "Teen", he was 23, a grown man.
2: Maybe they were robbing them, but one got shot so their story changed.
3: Confused old man tragiclly kills innocent man...this is "Malice Murder" ? Who the hell came up with that charge?
4: Cubans and ice skating...sounds fishy to me.
5: Half of what I just typed is pure speculation, just like half the content of that "News" report.

Link: Young Man Shot After GPS Error [Rate Link] - He wanted to go ice skating, instead he got a bullet in the head. Wouldn't you ask questions first before shooting?
