(NEWSOK) — DUNCAN — The prosecutor in a “thrill killing” case here said Thursday more gun laws would not have saved the victim.

“Absolutely not, no way,” said Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks, who has charged two teens with first-degree murder and a third teen with accessory to murder.

“These kids are not supposed to have a .22 revolver in the first place,” he said.

The three are accused in the fatal shooting Aug. 16 of Australian Christopher Lane, 22, who was a baseball player at East Central University in Ada. He was shot in the back as he jogged in Duncan, where he was visiting his girlfriend.
