DUNCAN — Duncan police say a 23-year-old East Central University athlete who was killed Friday was randomly gunned down.

Police said Sunday that one of the three juveniles arrested for killing Christopher Lane of Australia says they shot him for “the fun of it.”

A local television station reports the suspects are ages 15, 16 and 17. Their names weren't released because they are juveniles. But police say they are expected to face first-degree murder charges.

Officials say Lane played baseball for the Tigers and regularly visited Duncan to visit his girlfriend.
