15 year old charged in parent's shooting

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ga. -  Investigators say a Columbus teen who shot his parents was angry they told him to do his chores when he wanted to look up a bible verse for a friend who wanted to be "saved."

A judge Monday ordered the 15-year-old boy to be held without bond in a Youth Detention Center until a formal hearing.

45-year-old Kristi Lynn was shot in her right wrist and 40-year-old Randal Stanley Askevich was shot in his right hip Friday. Police say the teen took a gun from his parents' nightstand and was holding them at gunpoint when officers arrived.

The teen is charged with two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of possessing a firearm while under the age of 18.
