Halloween is supposed to be about pranks and candy, costumes and parties. But Halloween turned deadly for one Atlanta prankster this year. A 17-year-old was shot to death after egging a Mercedes-Benz.

The car, of unknown model, contained one Chuck Norris of a driver. After the car was covered in the chicken ova, the driver emerged in a fury, and shot the teen, identified at Tivarus King, in the neck and leg as he tried to run away.

Accuracy wasn't the Mercedes drivers' strong suit, however, lobbing at least 10 shots at the kid to hit him twice. If only the teen's accuracy had been equivalent, he might still be walking and talking today.

Tragic, stupid, and unnecessary, the worst part of the whole incident is that police are still investigating whether it was King that threw the eggs. The driver was arrested on traffic charges unrelated to the shooting, though we expect a murder indictment is soon to be added to his list of documented idiocy.
