#1 A 19-Year Old College Student Was Shot at a Party Over Beer Pong Rules
Lacie LaRose was attending a college party in Texas when an uninvited man, Ronald McNeil, began squabbling with partygoers over the rules of beer pong. When he said he would return with a gun, most did not take him seriously.
#2 A Group of Unwanted Strangers Shows Up
The party was held in College Station, home of Texas A&M University, and McNeil and a group of friends, who lived across the street from the party, showed up without invite and at first were said to be cordial.
#3 The Trouble Starts Over a Game
When the party had begun to die down, McNeil and his friends remained but were asked to leave after one in the group began arguing in a heated manner with residents of the home about the rules of beer pong.
#4 A Weak Story
After he and his friends were asked to leave, McNeil went across the street, got his gun, returned, and claims to have seen his friend being assaulted at which point the gun “accidentally” went off several times.
#5 A Family Shocked
Lacie was in the backyard grabbing beer when a bullet hit her, and she died at the hospital after friends tried to bring her to safety. Her mother, April, laments the loss of the daughter she described as caring.
