I am largely unsympathetic.

"Martin said her son turned 18 in September. He had been expelled from school but was trying to get his life back together, she said..."
If your plan for getting your life back together includes pointing guns at the cops, I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that it's not all that hot of a plan.

Still, gleaning inferences from the article, the kid's sitting square on the demographic bullseye where the bullets tend to land: Unemployed black teen male high school dropout with unmarried parents and an illegal gun in his trousers? Might as well be wearing a red velour pullover.
