No break-ins, no drug deal gone bad, bullets were flying through the truck according to father of victim

Below is a comment from the father of one of the victim’s allegedly shot by Seth Fontenot on February 10th, 2013:
After being at the parade Saturday, William and a few friends gathered at one of the boys’ house, and were all planning on spending the night there. Austin lives near the house where the boys were, and unfortunately, left his house, without his parents knowing, to walk over and join them. As the night got later, Austin decided he needed to head back home, and was about to walk back. William told him that there was no way he was going to let him walk back, alone, at that time of night. So Cole and William asked the older brother of the friend whose house they were at if they could use his truck to take Austin home a few blocks away. Neither Cole, nor William, knew exactly where Austin lived, so Austin gave them directions as they went. Once they got near Austin’s house, they slowed down as Austin was pointing out which house it was, and the next thing they knew, bullets were flying thorough the truck. That is all that happened. No matter what anyone says, reads, or hears on the news, none of what happened Saturday night has ANYTHING to do with car break-ins, drug deals gone bad, or any of the other ridiculous things that are being said. The only thing these 3 kids did wrong was end up in the wrong place at the wrong time, NOTHING else. Cole and William were trying to do the right thing, and had nothing but the safety of their friend in mind. I don’t want to get into too many graphic details, but these boys should be lauded as heroes. Once this tragedy happened, neither William, nor Cole, had any idea how to even get out of the neighborhood, so any rumors about any of them having anything to do with any break-ins in November or December, are completely base-less. William actually had to punch in his friend’s (where he was staying) address in his phone to find their way out of the neighborhood. And Cole, also being injured, was able to get the 3 of them to the hospital, under what anybody with a pulse would determine to be horrific circumstances. If that’s not heroic, nothing is. And I would hope that all of the people starting rumors and spreading lies will realize that the shooter is being charged with FIRST DEGREE murder, and 2 counts of attempted FIRST DEGREE murder. There is a reason the charges are what they are. IF anyone was doing what the speculation says they were doing, the charges would be different.
