McCOMB, Miss. – Authorities say a disagreement over a frozen snack led a McComb teenager to fatally shoot his father and threaten his mother. Curtis McCray Jr., 16, was arrested and charged with murder last week after allegedly shooting Curtis McCray Sr. with a shotgun from about 20 feet away, the Pike County Sheriff's Department (search) said.
Investigator David Haywood said the shooting occurred after the teen was punished for being involved in a minor wreck, and the boy became enraged when his parents returned home eating Sno-Balls and there wasn't one for him.
The teen then allegedly threatened his mother, Gloria, with the gun before speeding away in the family's car and leading authorities on a one-hour high-speed chase through three counties, Haygood said.
McCray was chased on Interstate 55 (search) at speeds up to 115 mph and police set up stop sticks to deflate his tires. He was taken into custody in Marion County.
The teenager is being charged as an adult and is also charged with felony pursuit, Haygood said.
He is being held at Pike County Jail.
