Boy, 16, jailed for 24 years for shooting schoolboy, 15, in face hours after playing violent Blood Trail game



A teen who shot his friend in the face with a shotgun then claimed he would "probably kill again" has been jailed for 24 years.



16-year-old Jacob Talbot-Lummis lay in wait for the victim, 15, as he walked to school on September 7, 2020, before "calmly" shooting him from less than 5ft away.



He then jumped in his dad's car, which he stole, and fled the scene in Kesgrave, near Ipswich, as his friend lay critically injured in a pool of blood.



The victim was left with "devastating and life-changing" injuries and is "partially paralysed" from the incident.



After the shooting, as his mum repeatedly screamed "what have you done?" at the boy, he showed her the double barrelled shotgun with a "smug and righteous" look on his face.



After he was finally arrested two hours later, he chillingly told officers: "I've done what I wanted to do, as scummy as it is."







The teen, who was today unmasked for the first time, was today, November 1, jailed for 24 years with a further five years on licence after being convicted of attempted murder.



His victim's mum wept during the sentencing hearing as the court heard how the teen "ruthlessly executed" his "savage plan".Latest Post
