Three teens have been accused as the killers of Australian baseball player Chris Lane. Lane, who was living in Duncan, Oklahoma, on a baseball scholarship, was gunned down Friday afternoon in a drive-by shooting. One of the three has reportedly confessed to the random murder.

The Oklahoma teens who face first-degree murder charges have been named as Chancey Luna, James Edwards and Michael Jones.

But their parents yesterday protested their innocence.

Jennifer Luna, whose son is suspected of firing the fatal shot, claimed her son was at home saying: “My son is not that way. My son is a good kid.”

The three teens now say that they killed Lane at random because they were “bored.”

It comes as Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford said he had secured the confession of the 17-year-old who summoned investigators to his jail cell and claimed he and the younger boys were bored “so they decided to kill somebody”.

“He said he was the driver of the car,” Chief Ford said.

“They saw Christopher jog by the house they were at, they chose him to be the target, they got in the car, drove up behind him and shot him in the back.

“He said the 16-year-old fired the shot.”

The 16 year old would be Chancey Luna, who still has the endorsement of his mom, above.
