Ohio teen live streams himself shooting at neighbor’s house

AKRON, OH (WCMH) – An Akron teen was arrested after police say he fired several shots into a neighbor’s home.

The teen made investigators’ jobs easy by streaming the whole thing on Facebook.

The Facebook videos show the teen waving around a rifle and a 9mm handgun, then pointing both toward an open window and firing.

WEWS reported the teen seems to be amused by the indiscriminate gunfire before he covers the window with a curtain.

His neighbor, Tonya Watts, wasn’t so amused as her home was hit by gunfire.

“I heard the shot and I hopped up,” Watts said. “If you’re just sitting in your house and you’re watching television, you hear something like that, that would freak you out. It would scare you because I’m not used to hearing that.”

Watts said the teen lives with his grandmother and was home along. She calls the fact that he recorded the shooting live on Facebook outrageous.

“It’s awful. That’s being an idiot,” said Watts.

The boy was arrested on weapons charges.
