A few days ago reports surfaced that 17-year-old Ethan Liming was beaten to death on the campus of Lebron James’ I Promise school in Akron, Ohio.
Well, in new details from OutKick Ethan Liming was reportedly playing around with his SPLATRBALL gun, a highly popular water gun sold at Walmart.
Apparently, the group of boys Ethan was horsing around with were angered by the water gun and a fight broke out in the parking lot of the I Promise school which resulted in Ethan being beat to death.
Although it’s speculated a fight occurred the police report sounds more like he was jumped and the fight was never fair, to begin with.
An emergency team did arrive at the incident but Ethan was dead on the scene.
Outkick shared these details:
Police in Akron, Ohio announced Wednesday that the murder of 17-year-old Ethan Liming outside LeBron James’ I Promise elementary school appears to have been “provoked” by the use of a water gun that Walmart sells for $70.
According to preliminary findings, the Akron Police Department believes Liming was in a car with three other teens who were “riding around the surrounding area shooting a SPLATRBALL Water Bead Blaster at objects and possibly unsuspecting people.”
Police say Liming and his friends seem to have pulled into the I Promise parking lot and “appeared to have targeted or approached the subjects who were on the court and fired the gel soft gun at them.”
“The collective actions of the teens in the car appear to have unfortunately provoked the altercation,” investigators said of their findings while adding that “While these actions appear to have played a role in the incident, investigators do not believe the attack or the murder were remotely justified.”
