  Finally he spoke about it but not to the nation. The statement, appeared in Australia’s Herald Sun- MGM

President Barack Obama issued a statement on the fatal shooting of Christopher Lane, the Australian college baseball player who was allegedly gunned down in Oklahoma by three teens who were «bored» and «decided to kill somebody.»

The statement, which appeared in Australia’s Herald Sun via White House spokesman Matt Lehrich, offered condolences to Lane’s family and called out the senseless nature of the shooting:

«As the president has expressed on too many tragic occasions, there is an extra measure of evil in an act of violence that cuts a young life short. The president and first lady’s thoughts and prayers are with Chris Lane’s family and friends in these trying times.»

The President’s remarks followed a tribute by the U.S. ambassador to Australia that honored the “strength and bravery of Chris’ family as they deal with this unspeakable tragedy,” NBC News reported.

The statement came 11 days after the 22-year-old athlete was shot in the back while on a training run in Duncan, Okla., Aug. 16.
