Christopher Lane, who’s from Australia, was gunned down in Duncan, Oklahoma, while he was out jogging last week.

“They witnessed a young man run by on the street. Chose him as the target,” Police Chief Danny Ford told CNN affiliate KSWO.

When police eventually arrested the three teens — ages 15, 16 and 17 — one of them offered up a motive that made clear that Lane, who attended East Central University on a baseball scholarship, was chosen at random.
