Hey,
thats kind of a strange question. Did you know any of the boys involved? I actually was in school with 2 of them and the third was my neighbor for a few years. It was deemed a murder/suicide because they could never prove that the adult (18 doug lane) was actually the shooter (which would have made it a double homicide). Doug claimed that the shooter "accidentally" shot the first boy (ian fueck) and because he was so freaked out by the accident he turned and shot himself. The only problem was that it was a rifle and the way he was shot didnt match the way a person would shoot themselves with a rifle. The police couldnt prove it but the adult was a frequent drug user and "through the grapevine" i heard he made a few admissions of guilt to different friends. The story was that he was high and playing with the rifle. He accidentally shot the first boy and was so freaked out and scared (because he was an adult and open for state prison) that he shot the other boy so he could manipulate the story to his advantage. Now the adult in this story was my neighbor and i never spoke to him after the incident because he had moved years before. So as you can imagine this story that i am telling is only my interpretation of the events based solely on what i heard when the entire thing happened. I was in high school at the time which was only about a mile from where the scene of the crime was. our school averaged 50 students per graduating class so you can imagine that EVERYONE knew the people involved and it was a very big deal in a town of only about 300. Take this for what you want, I am only saying things i remember from that time. So dont quote me as fact. Im sorry i couldnt help with the second boys name. It was a terrible thing and there is only 1 person who knows the truth. Anyway i hope this helped and remember im only recalling stuff i heard and not first person.

"PETERSBURG, Pa.- A 13-year-old boy fatally shot a 16-year-old boy with a rifle he didn't know was loaded, then used the gun to kill himself when he realized what had happened, authorities said.

Ian Fuiek, 13, apparently shot James Prough with a rifle that was in Fuiek's home, State Police Sgt. Matt Wright said.

The boy called 911 for help before his death on Friday." http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/ar...

"Two teenagers have died in a shooting incident in the United States.

Police in Pennsylvania say a 13-year-old boy shot a 16-year-old boy with a rifle he did not know was loaded.

He then used the rifle to kill himself.

State police sergeant Matt Wright said the younger boy, Ian Fuiek, apparently shot James Prough with a rifle that was in Fuiek's home.

The boy telephoned the emergency services for help before his death on Friday.

"We have a tape of the 911 call, and we are studying it to determine the sequence of events," Sgt Wright said. " http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/714603.st...

hope this helps...outta curiosity,why do you ask?

Ian Fuiek was my cousin. No one knows the full story and never will. It's all a mystery. I highly doubt a 13 year old could have shot himself with a rifle. But the media can shape any scene they would like, so take the story for what you wish.

I went to school with both of them and Ian was one of my best friends. Unless you personally know anything about the incident you should shut your mouth bc it hurt all of us deeply! I think of both of them daily, please you have no idea what its like to lose friends at that age. You can't even walk past their lockers for the next 5 yrs without crying and knowing what happened!
