    He was probably going after the mother, not knowing the boy was in the car. He ended up killing an innocent child, which is probably why he turned himself in. Suddenly, that "motive" whatever it was wasn't that important anymore.

    I'm sure with the freezing temperatures and no one else wanting to be implemented with crime, he probably found it easy to turn himself in.

    There is NO motive for shooting an innocent child, just pure evil. I hope he rots.

    There is a special place in Hell (and prison) for this fine gentleman (WRAL wouldn't let me use the word that is more fitting for him).
