Teen: Student said 'Sorry it had to end this way,' shot her

WAXAHACHIE, Texas (AP) - A teenage girl told a judge that a high school classmate in a small North Texas town told her ``Sorry it had to end this way,'' then shot her four times.

WBAP-AM in Dallas-Fort Worth report the 15-year-old Italy High School student testified Tuesday in a hearing on whether her 16-year-old classmate will be prosecuted as an adult for her shooting in the school cafeteria Jan. 22. There was no immediate decision.

The girl said she had hugged the boy, asked him to sit and told him he appeared angry. She said that's when he drew back, told her ``Sorry it had to end this way,'' and shot her.

Sheriff's investigator Brian McIntosh says the boy then chased the girl outside but dropped his gun when confronted by officers.
