Shocking surveillance footage caught the moment an 11-year-old grabbed a gun from his mother's vehicle and fired on his teammates after they reportedly took his bag of chips.
The video, released by police Tuesday night, appears to show the alleged shooter being chased by one of his teammates following a youth football practice at a park in Apopka, Florida, Monday night.
The young boy then races to a vehicle in the parking lot and grabs a gun from the passenger-side seat.
He then walks over to the sidewalk and fires a single shot at another boy, who is walking away with his back turned.
Moments later, a woman — believed to be his mother — can be seen grabbing the firearm from the kid's grasp before holding his hands behind his back and apparently reprimanding him in front of their vehicle as others try to flee.
The single shot struck one 13-year-old in the torso, while another was struck in the arm.
Police say the altercation began when the two victims slapped a bag of chips from the younger boy's hands, WESH reports.
The 11-year-old has since been arrested and charged with one count of attempted second-degree murder.
Republichuds rivalling foids with their pettiness, you love to see it! Hopefully his next act is to require AOC to submit to an in-person foot inspection.
lot of great quotes in there
literally got stabbed in the heart lol and also
she, at a distance, asks a man on the ground stabbed 3 times bleeding out if he's okay lmao
I'm not familiar with hustle and bustle capital but that does not sound like a place I would ever want to be especially at 4am
yea I'm sure the best people are on it
I can see why these guys were friends. nothing will be learned from this'
I know I shit on AmeriKKKa a lot, but holy frick imagine being a European
Cairo (Egypt) (AFP) -- Ten years after President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi rose to power in Egypt promising prosperity for all, he embarks on a third run for office as Egyptians buckle under unrelenting economic strain.
In July 2013, then-army chief Sisi, wearing his uniform and trademark dark glasses, went on television asking for "a mandate" to fight "terrorism" after the army toppled democratically elected but divisive Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.
The following month, security forces forcibly dispersed two pro-Morsi protest camps in Cairo in an operation that killed more than 700 people.
Sisi secured a mandate at the ballot box the following year, and was re-elected in 2018.
On Monday, he announced he will "again heed the people's call" and run in December, while thousands of supporters celebrated in ready-built stages across the Arab world's most populous country.
Sahar Abdelkhalek, a teacher who escorted a bus full of her students to a rally in western Cairo, is grateful.
"All around us, countries collapsed and never recovered, but because of our president and our army, we're moving forward," she said.
Sisi won with nearly 97 percent of the vote in his first election, and by a similar margin last time. He is widely expected to emerge victorious again in the historically autocratic country.
But with Egyptians struggling to survive during their nation's worst-ever economic crisis, Sisi's defining ethos might not be as persuasive as it once was, both domestically and amongst the country's allies.
For his supporters, including the state's sizeable media machine, he is still the "hero" who stamped out "terrorism", after massive crowds protested Morsi's rule.
His backers laud Sisi for restoring Egyptians' sense of safety and prioritising massive development projects, the biggest being a $58 billion New Administrative Capital in the desert east of Cairo.
Experts call it a "vanity" project.
What Sisi describes as his "New Republic" revolves around his image as a visionary maverick, priding himself on personally overseeing state development funds and directing government spending -- including to "eradicate Hepatitis C", once a devastating epidemic in the country.
But the 68-year-old rules "alone, and is blamed alone" for the country's woes, according to veteran human rights activist Hossam Bahgat.
The currency has lost half its value since March 2022, pushing inflation to a record-breaking 39.7 percent in the import-dependent economy.
Born in November, 1954 in Cairo's El-Gamaleya neighbourhood, Sisi graduated from Egypt's military academy in 1977. He later studied in Britain and the United States.
The former military intelligence chief has four children, including Mahmoud, a high-ranking officer in state intelligence.
During his early years in power, Sisi's popularity was so great that supporters put his face on vehicles, products and even baked goods in what they called "Sisimania."
He adopted the image of "the father of the nation", soft-spoken and most often seen seated with a microphone in hand, presiding over public ceremonies.
But Egyptians now sense they are being increasingly reproached.
He has told them to "stop talking nonsense" about an economy they do not understand, to tolerate "hunger and deprivation" for prosperity, and consider "donating blood" to shore up their income.
Patience worn thin
The president has suffered "a cross-class loss of legitimacy," Bahgat said, even among hardline supporters who have become disillusioned after watching their life savings disappear with the weakening currency.
While Egyptians express their frustration online, some of Sisi's once supportive international allies have cooled, experts say.
Most world capitals "have lost confidence" in his economic model, according to Robert Springborg, of the Italian Institute of International Affairs.
At the core of his model is "militarisation" and "profligate borrowing for prestige projects with limited economic benefits" that formerly generous Gulf allies are no longer willing to fund, Springborg said.
Gulf states have begun demanding reform and returns on their investments, "no longer believing there is political will within this leadership to change anything," according to independent analyst Hafsa Halawa.
"There is now genuine frustration, if not outright anger."
According to rights groups, tens of thousands of dissidents have been arrested during his rule, for criticising the government as well as even for complaining online about inflation.
Authorities have jailed one of Sisi's potential challengers in the election, Hisham Kassem, and rights groups say dozens of supporters of another, Ahmed al-Tantawi, have been detained.
On the campaign trail, Tantawi has called Sisi "Egypt's worst leader in 200 years."

Names have significance, especially when they're written in the stars.
A group of astronomers is coalescing around an idea to rename two neighbors of the Milky Way, the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds.
Named after explorer Ferdinand Magellan, the satellite galaxies are visible with the naked eye from the Southern Hemisphere. But Magellan's name is not fitting, astronomer Mia de los Reyes and colleagues argue. The leader of the first expedition to successfully circle the globe, Magellan enslaved and killed Indigenous people encountered on the voyage, which set out from Spain in 1519 (SN: 9/17/19).
"Because we're naming things in the night sky, which belongs to everyone, we think that it's important to have names that reflect all of humanity," says de los Reyes, of Amherst College in Massachusetts. She calls for the name change in an opinion piece published September 12 in Physics. Magellan's voyage helped pave the way for Spanish colonialism in South AmeriKKKa, Guam and the Philippines, says de los Reyes, who is Filipino AmeriKKKan. "Many people see Magellan as a villain in the Philippines."
The Magellanic clouds loom large in the field of astronomy. They're independent galaxies, but close enough that astronomers can observe the individual stars within (SN: 4/1/22). "The Magellanic Clouds are this amazing laboratory for seeing things up close and personal," says astronomer Sally Oey of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, a supporter of the name change.
Magellan wasn't an astronomer. The clouds were noted by a member of his expedition, but they were already well-known to many cultures in the Southern Hemisphere, and even to previous European explorers. "It doesn't make sense to have them named after any one person, let alone a person who never actually studied them," says astronomer Gurtina Besla of the University of Arizona in Tucson.
The galaxies have been known scientifically by Magellan's name since only the end of the 19th century --- well after Magellan's voyage. That's just a blip in the history of astronomy, the researchers argue.
More than 100 astronomers have expressed interest in the campaign, anchored by a core group of about 50, de los Reyes says. The group aims to bring the proposal to the International Astronomical Union, in hopes of eventually holding a vote on the name change. Other fields of science are undergoing similar debates, with groups of researchers pushing to revise offensive names for certain plants and animals, for example (SN: 8/25/21).
The astronomers are now trying out new names. One popular suggestion is to call them the "Milky Clouds." That would maintain the commonly used acronyms, LMC and SMC. And it would reflect the galaxies' connection to something much bigger than any one person --- the Milky Way.
I want to see oil prices crash just to smirk at this province. Moving to the states seems more desirable.
