The E.O. Green School shooting was the February 12, 2008, killing of Lawrence "Larry" Fobes King (January 13, 1993 – February 13, 2008) who was a 15-year-old gay student at E.O. Green Junior High School in Oxnard, California, United States. He was shot twice by fellow student, 14-year-old Brandon McInerney, and was kept on life support until he died two days later.
McInerney has been charged as an adult with premeditated murder with enhancements of discharge of a firearm and a hate crime. He is being held in lieu of US$770,000 bail, and faces a minimum sentence of 53 years imprisonment to a maximum life sentence.
Newsweek has described the shooting as "the most prominent gay-bias crime since the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard", bringing attention to issues of gun violence as well as gender expression and sexual identity of teenagers.
