TEENAGE MURDER-SUICIDE: Matthew Bolton, 15, gunned down his ex-girlfriend, Anastasia Greer, 16, and then killed himself on Friday in front of stunned neighbors in a murder-suicide in suburban Phoenix.
The Arizona Republic reports neighbor Henry Gano said, “I heard a scream.” “I looked up and saw the young man chasing her. Immediately after I heard the scream, I heard a gunshot, then several gunshots. By the time I got to the front of the house, they were both on the ground.”
The Republic reports Anastasia Greer was shot four times in the chest, while Matthew Bolton shot himself in the face. The gun was found next to his body.
Students at Sandra Day O’Connor High School had warned the authorities Matthew Bolton had a gun. An officer who was assigned to the school decided the teen wasn’t a risk after searching for him on Friday at the school.
