    Seattle teen kills man for cellphone — then complains the device is too cheap: cops

    Seattle teen kills man for cellphone — then complains the device is too cheap: cops
    Byron White, 17, is accused of callously killing David Peterson, 54, during a scuffle in a Greenwood parking lot. The teen was on the lam for about a week before cops captured him trying to board a flight to Atlanta.

    A Seattle teen shot and killed a man for his cellphone — then went to a friend’s house and complained the stolen gizmo wasn’t nice enough, police say.

    Byron White, 17, now faces charges as an adult for killing David Peterson last month in the Washington city’s Greenwood neighborhood.

    Byron White, 17, apparently enjoyed taking photos of himself with cellphones. He even shot and killed a man for a cellphone, police say. White was arrested March 1 as he tried to fly to Atlanta from Seattle.


    White was on the lam for a week after the shooting until cops caught up to him at the airport last weekend as the boy tried to board a flight to Atlanta, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported.
    “David Peterson went out for a walk around the neighborhood after dinner and never returned, ” King County prosecuting attorney Dan Satterberg said in a statement. “He was a random victim from a chance encounter with a dangerous young man. That the evidence shows he was murdered for his cellphone by a teenager with a gun makes this all the more tragic and senseless.”

    The alleged killer was motivated by robbery, Seattle cops say.


    The Ballard High School student approached Peterson, 54, around 8:30 p.m. Feb. 23 and punched him in the head in a robbery attempt, the Post-Intelligencer reported.
    Peterson fought back and went to a parking lot, where he called 911 to report the attempted theft. But as Peterson spoke, he saw White coming back for him and warned the dispatcher his attacker was returning.

    Police found David Peterson dead in this Seattle parking lot in Greenwood. They say the victim at first fought off his attacker, who came back and shot the man and stole his cellphone.


    The dispatcher heard Peterson tell his alleged attacker that he was not going to hand over the phone when the line suddenly went dead, the newspaper reported.
    Responding officers found Peterson dead, shot once in the chest. The suspect had fled the scene, but cops found one 9-mm. bullet casing on scene.

    Byron White, 17, takes a selfie with a cellphone. He’s accused of shooting and killing a man for his phone — then complaining it wasn’t nice enough for him.

    White reportedly went to a friend’s home just blocks from the murder scene, where he told people there he had killed a man, the PI reported.

    “He said that the man had seen his face, and he had to shoot him,” a detective wrote in court papers, the newspaper reported. “He showed his companions the phone he had finally taken from the man and expressed his disappointment that it was not a nicer model.”

    Cops never recovered the gun, but say White admitted to the murder when he was arrested at Sea-Tac airport March 1.

    White is charged with murder, unlawful possession of a firearm and attempted robbery. He’s held in lieu of $2 million bail and is set next to appear in court March 17.

    If convicted, the callous killer faces up to 35 years in prison.

    I figured the victim was white since the article OVERTLY excluded that information!

    Welcome to Obama's totalitarian America. If a white guy had gunned down a black teen like this the press would be on fire about it for years!
