    California Police: 2 Kids Dead, 5 Injured After Military Shell ExplodesThursday, August 31, 2006
    BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — A group of children were playing with a military shell given to them by a neighbor before the device exploded, killing a young boy and girl, police and witnesses said Wednesday.
    Bakersfield police said there have been no arrests or charges in the case and are still trying to determine what caused the shell to detonate Tuesday, damaging homes and forcing neighbors to wrap bloodied and dazed children in blankets.
    "As you can imagine, this was a traumatic experience for the kids and their parents. So it's going to take a while to sort things out," said Bakersfield Police Detective Greg Terry.
    Andrew Etcheverry, 8, died at the scene of the explosion in the city's Oleander neighborhood. Jeni Marie Klawitter, 7, died at the Kern Medical Center, the county coroner said.
    Five other children, the oldest 12 years old, had injuries ranging from minor to moderate. Police initially reported that six children were injured but later determined that an 8-year-old girl thought to be hurt was not at the scene when the shell exploded.
    Frank Sendejo, who lives near the complex where the explosion occurred, confirmed Wednesday that he had given a group of children a 40 mm shell. Bakersfield police said they've talked to Sendejo.

    He may or may not go to jail, but his life is over. Despite our criminal justice system being somewhat lax, our civil courts are alive and well............

    My guess is he gave the kids a shell with a live primer still intact and being old they are very unstable.

    Well, his name is Sendejo, and if you change the S to a P, now it's Pendejo.
    All that's needed now is an accent on the j, and it's self explanatory.

    and if you take five and subtract three and add five to that and multiply it by two then subtract 7, it means Tupac is alive...
