i am a good friend of andrew. i honestly dont believe that he would have ever intentionally done something like this. it really hurts me to see how the press makes him look like such a terrible kid when he really is very sweet. He did a terrible terrible thing but it was an accident. i know him well enough to know he would never do something like this on purpose

Alexandra's family has had a terrible tragedy...but her father should look at the fact that he has some responsibility in this, too. He ignored his son for most of his life and then tried to bring him into the family?! Of course Andrew had resentment and jealousy for his sister.

Also, at fourteen, Andrew's brain is NOT developed enough to be responsible. He is NOT an adult.

I'll keep Andrew and all of his family in my prayers.

Andrew was in a couple of my classes, and like anonymous said, he was a really sweet kid, we use to listen to music and hang out, and the media just loves to slaughter a person's true self and turn them into a monster.

I knew Alex too, we were in choir together, she was a sweet girl too.

Andrew knew how to use a gun so I can't say it was an accident or not, but I'm sure he is feeling horrible for what happened and his dad should back off, and stop making him feel worst!

Well i knew Alex. she was a really really close friend 2 me.I really think that Alex didn't deserved this at all.people who knew he had a gun should of said something, they could of prevented all of this. Im not trying to point fingers or any thing but he knows better than to point a loaded gun. it doesn't take a scientist to know that. I knew Andrew to, i don't hate him, but I'm disappointed in him.
