WASHINGTON (AP) — Court documents show a botched marijuana deal led to a shooting inside a McDonald’s bathroom at the Verizon Center arena in downtown Washington.

The Washington Post reports that the 25-year-old man who was wounded on Aug. 12 was preparing to sell pot to his attackers.

A 15-year-old boy is accused of being the gunman. On Tuesday, police arrested a 17-year-old boy and 20-year-old Lafayette Booker of northeast Washington.

Police say in court documents that Booker and the teens agreed to pay $40 for marijuana. But the 15-year-old didn’t have any money and said he would rob the dealer. He confronted the victim in the bathroom as the man was weighing the pot on a set of scales. The man was shot in the left side of the head.

  1. I agree with Kenshin Himura, you deserve to die, you scum-dog, you pig-shit, you wanna impress Daddy so bad you’d kill for the chance. Here in West-by-God-Virginia the law has settled down some. But best policy is : Don’t give them a reason to stop you, know they are out to get somebody for anything? Outta site, out of mind ! Some are still head – hunting.

  2. Andre Anderson, where did you go to get this gig ? Did it do you any good ? It looks like fun !
    What did it run you ? Roughly ? Ya think it would cure acne ?
