17-Yr-Old Honor Student Shot and Killed by 13 and 14-Yr-Old Boys He Offered to Drive Home in Subzero Temperature

He was a 17-year-old high school senior, a varsity soccer player, and an honor roll student enrolled in an EMT program at a community college. But, most importantly, Jack Snyder was a good human being.

The good Samaritan was killed last Friday night by two children, a 14-year-old and a 13-year-old, who Snyder was trying to help when he offered to give them a ride home after spotting them in the bitter cold on his way home from his girlfriend’s birthday party in Battle Creek, MI.

The two young boys shot the 17-year-old honor student twice during an attempted carjacking.

Both of the suspects have been arrested. The 14-year-old boy will be charged as an adult.

Daily Mail reports that Jack Snyder was found lying next to his car at around 12:10 a.m. the morning of January 17 in Battle Creek after he was shot in an attempted carjacking, according to police.

EMTs and medical personnel tried to revive the 17-year-old in subzero temperatures, but Snyder was declared dead at the scene.

Battle Creek Police Sergeant Jeff Case said in a press conference earlier this week that Snyder’s desire to help led to his death.

“The victim was trying to be a good Samaritan by giving them a ride with the cold temperatures. I do know that he resisted the carjacking. So again, he was trying to help out but wasn’t going to give over the car,” Case said.

Fox 17 reported on the tragic incident:

Chimner was charged Friday with felony murder, carjacking, and two weapons-related violations. He is being charged as an adult and faces a maximum life sentence without parole.

The 13-year-old who turned himself in has already been charged with murder.

The suspects had no known connection to Snyder. Case said they “have dealt with them before” but wouldn’t confirm any criminal history.

Teachers held a vigil procession in honor of Snyder earlier this week.

A funeral was held earlier Friday for Snyder.

‘Jack had a zest for life and made the world a better place with his care and love for everyone. He loved spending time with his family and friends.’

‘On behalf of my family and I, we want to thank every single person that has reached out and came to see us,’ his sister Meadow wrote in a Facebook post.

‘I’ve heard from people that I haven’t seen or heard from in years, and it shows how much support we have during this never-ending nightmare. My Brother was 17. He was supposed to graduate this year, and these monsters took his future away from him. He was the smartest out of all of us. He was gonna leave this shitty place. He had the biggest heart; he cared so much for others.’ They took our brother away from us. It doesn’t seem real; it’s all fake news. I miss him so much.’

    We are raising Lazy chilren, who become lazy adults. The US needs to get back to the attitudes and slogans that made us great. Work hard for what you want, no one owes you anything, There is no free lunch, ETC.

Let those Men pay their way.

    How convenient they forgot to show a picture or the of the No Doubt racist black entitlement demons that killed the 17 year old white boy trying to offer them a ride home so these murderous thug monkeys demons didn’t freeze, let this be a lesson to all good cultures & people, the victim would be better off letting Thug monkey demons freeze to death, because murdering a white person was exactly the intention of these demonic entitlement Democrat cultured racist demons &, fake victim indoctrinated and programmed future Democrat murderous chimping out demons in training.

    So sad. This person clearly had good in his heart to help under the circumstances. Who would of thought that these teens had weapons and would kill this person for trying to help?

    They should both receive the death sentence.
