S01E07-I | Bloody Valentine | The Murder of Larry King (Part I)

On February 12th, 2008, Larry King was shot twice in the back of the head by Brandon McInerney, a fellow student in his English class, all because Larry had made the fatal error of asking Brandon to be his Valentine and many blamed the school for failing to protect the perpetrator from his victim (no, you read that correctly). In Part I, we meet Larry and Brandon and look at how a 15-year-old ended up bleeding out on a classroom floor.
