(Scroll down for video) A young teenager had a hard time dealing with rejection and a broken heart.
A teenage romance turned into a tragedy when the teenager of Arizona, shot and killed his former girlfriend before ending his own life.
Matthew Bolton, 15, and Anastasia “Ana” Greer, were both students at the Sandra Day O’Connor High School. They were in love and have been together until Greer broke up with him.
Police said that Bolton of Phoenix, did not go to school the day of the murder-suicide. It is unclear how he got the weapon, which was found on a sidewalk near the bodies when police arrived.
Officers responded to a 911 call of a shooting around 12:00 p.m., and two teenagers were found dead in the front lawn of a house of gunshot wounds. Investigators said that Bolton got a ride to meet the girl in front of a friend’s house.
Once there, Bolton was seen running after his former girlfriend before shooting her in the chest. Bolton then turned the gun on himself. May they rest in peace.
