A Kid Kills

Jun. 16, 1992
60 minutes

When 15 year old Damien Bynoe and two friends took a gun and went to settle a dispute, 15 year old Korey Grant and 11 year old Charles Copney, Jr. wound up dead. Public outcry over the case led Massachusetts politicians to pass one of the country's toughest juvenile crime laws. Frontline probes what turned Damien into a kid with a gun and examines the debate over how to deal fairly with him and other young people drawn into the violence on our streets.

Producer(s): June Cross

Awards: The Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award/1st Prize Television
