Trick-or-treat boy shot in US


An ex-convict who feared he was being robbed has shot dead a 12-year-old boy in the US state of South Carolina.

The boy's father and one of his brothers were also wounded when the man opened fire with an AK-47 when they called at his home on Halloween.

Neil Bowdler reports.
