Teen Shot in Junior High Classroom Taken Off Life Support; Classmate Charged

A 15-year-old boy who was shot at his junior high school died of head wounds, an autopsy showed.

Lawrence King was taken off life support and had some of his organs harvested, said Armando Chavez, a senior deputy medical examiner with Ventura County. The autopsy results were released Friday.

King was targeted this week by a younger boy because he came to school in Oxnard dressed in feminine attire, classmates said.

Prosecutors have charged 14-year-old Brandon David McInerney with premeditated murder and want him tried as an adult.

McInerney was being held on $770,000 bail. Defense attorney Brian A. Vogel didn't return telephone messages seeking comment.
