A 16-year-old teenager from Pennsylvania is currently in police custody and has been charged with first-degree murder, homicide and possession of a firearm by a minor after
allegedly killing his classmate and taking a selfie with the dead body.

Ryan Morgan (pictured above), who is also a 16-year-old teenager was shot in the head by his classmate at his home in Jeannette, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday February 4th.

The teen killer, whose name is Maxwell Morton, shot his classmate in cold blood. Morton then sent the incriminating selfie to another friend using SnapChap, an app that deletes messages after a few seconds. But unfortunately for him, the friend he sent the photo to saved it right away. The photo was accompanied by the text: “I told you I cleaned up the shells” and “Ryan was not the last one”.

Killer: Maxwell Morton


The killer was arrested after a copy of the photo was received by the police. The photo was sent to the police by the victim’s mother who contacted the them after receiving the horrible image depicting the death of his son.

“(Police) received a copy of the photo which depicted the victim sitting in the chair with a gunshot wound to the face,” said an affidavit seen by the Pittsburgh Tribune Review. “It also depicts a black male taking the ‘selfie,’ with his face facing the camera and the victim behind. “I told you I cleaned up the shells” and “Ryan was not the last one”.

Ryan, who went to Jeannette High School with his alleged killer, was buried today. It is alleged Morton confessed to killing his classmate after the police found a 9mm pistol tucked away under his basement stairs in Jeannette, Pennsylvania.
