Florida Teen Who Shot Attempted Waverunner Thief Won't Face Criminal Charges

Thought he had a gun; unbeknownst to teen, thief was deafmute


Jack Davis, the teen who fatally shot an unarmed WaveRunner thief in the waters next to his Miami Shores home, won't face criminal charges under Florida's self-defense law.

The lethal shotgun blast, prosecutors said Tuesday, was the tragic culmination of a series of facts that when woven together, instilled a sickening fear in the 14-year-old student.
